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 Bachchan Corporation.
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 lead.
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 year.
