Kajal Aggarwal, who made her first Tamil cinema appearance way back in 2008 has grown by leaps and bounds, becoming one of the top heroines in both Tamil and Telugu film industries over the years.
Having shared screen space with stars like Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Suriya, Dhanush and Vishal, Kajal might feel a sense of completion as far as her acting career is concerned, if she can allot dates to Sathya Jyothi Films to be a part of Thala Ajith's upcoming film, which is being referred as 'AK 57'.
After holding talks with many actresses including Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia, the makers have finally zeroed in on the All in All Azhagu Raja actress, who is likely to sign on the dotted lines, according to a source close to the project.
"For now, Kajal is in talks for the film. The actress has almost been confirmed, though she is yet to sign the project. Several other actresses, Anushka, Ritika Singh and Tamannaah, had been approached earlier for the role. But now, it looks like Kajal has bagged it," the source told a leading daily.
If she does bag the role, it will be interesting to see the on-screen chemistry between Ajith and the 31-year-old actress for the first time ever, as they have never worked together before.
The project, which will go on floors before the end of this month, will also have actor Karunakaran sharing screen space with Ajith for the first time.
Directed by Siva, the film, which is said to be a stylish thriller set against the backdrop of Europe, will have its music scored by young sensation Anirudh Ravichander.
Meanwhile, Kajal is also shooting for Jiiva's Kavalai Vendam and Vikram's Garuda. She will also be seen in an untitled Telugu flick, which has Rana Daggubati in the lead.
