Here is a piece of information that will get movie buffs across the country excited. The latest buzz has it that Ajith Kumar's 'Thala 58' will be directed by Atlee of Theri fame.
But the best part is, it is said that Hindi superstar Amitabh
Bachchan will produce the film under his home banner Amitabh
If everything goes as per plans, we might have the 73-year-old
legend collaborating with Thala Ajith for the second time.
Yes, you read it right - second time it is, for Amitabh and
Ajith had worked together in 1997 when the former had bankrolled
Ullaasam, starring Ajith, Vikram and Maheswari in the
Ullaasam remains to be the only Tamil film produced by
Amitabh Bachchan till date. It is now speculated that the
Shamitabh actor is making a comeback as a Tamil producer
with 'Thala 58'.
Thanks to the box office success of Ilayathalapathy Vijay's
Theri, which had collected over 100 Crore rupees
worldwide, it is said that the production team is keen on roping in
Atlee to helm this project as well.
However, this news contradicts with few other reports, that
claimed Vishnuvardhan will be directing 'Thala 58', which is a
historical project showcasing Ajith as a Chola King.
No official confirmation on either of the news is available at
the moment, leaving the rest to fans' imagination.
But what can be said with conviction is the fact that both these
speculated projects, if brought to life, will have enough in them
to get Ajith fans excited across the world.
Meanwhile, 'Thala 57', which is being referred to as 'AK 57' has
gone on floors. Being directed by Siva and bankrolled by Sathya
Jyothi Films, the movie is expected to hit the theatre early next
