The latest buzz in the town is about actress Ritika Singh's involvement in Ajith's upcoming film Thala 57. It is said that the Irudhi Suttru girl is in talks for an important role in the movie.
Speculated to have two heroines, Thala 57 might see Tamannaah joining hands with Ajith for the second time after Veeram. Ritika Singh, if roped in, might play second fiddle to the Baahubali actress.
Earlier, it was reported that the makers are in talks with Hindi actress Kriti Sanon for the role. But now, it looks like Ritika has been zeroed in by director Siva and his team.
But when a leading daily contacted the National Award-winning actress, she has bluntly said, "I can't talk anything about it now."
After making an impressive debut, the 22-year-old kickboxer turned actress went on to bag Vijay Sethupathi's next, which is being directed by Kaaka Muttai fame Manikandan.
If she manages to feature in Thala 57, there are no doubts that her acting career in Tamil cinema will find itself a new route to reach great heights.
Meanwhile, there are reports that claim Santhanam too, has been approached to play a crucial role in Thala 57.
Last seen in Vaaliba Raja, the Inimey Ippadithaan actor is busy filming for his upcoming films, Dhilluku Dhuddu and Server Sundaram. Both these movies will have him playing the lead.
After an interesting statement, in which he said, going forward, he will not take up the role of a comedian barring a few films that features his "friends" such as Simbu and Arya, Santhanam has concentrated more on films portraying him in the lead.
This being the case, it should be interesting to see if he goes on to sign Thala 57. Santhanam was seen sharing screen space with Ajith in movies like Billa and Veeram.
