We had earlier reported that Thala Ajith may take up two projects simultaneously, once he fully recovers from the surgery, owing to his knee injury.
Now, a leading daily has confirmed the same. While Ajith's next project (Thala 57) with director Siva is a certainty, Vishnuvardhan's collaboration with the Billa star is yet to be confirmed, but likely to happen.
"While Siva's film had been confirmed long back, Ajith is yet to sign on the dotted line for Vishnuvardhan's project," a source close to the actor has told the English daily.
It is said that the Vedalam director is trying to rope in Nayantara and Anirudh and that the film is likely to hit the big screen for Diwali, 2016.
Since Ajith is set to resume work after a long hiatus, he would preferably want to treat his fans with back-to-back releases and thus, Vishnuvardhan's flick is aimed for a Pongal release, next year.
According to the report, the Arrambam director had narrated two scripts to Ajith, before the star actor zeroed in on one.
