According to a report in Cinemalead, the Ajith-Gautham Menon film will be a quickie and will be completed within five months. The film is likely to get released in the month of September. However, there is no official confirmation on the same.
Gautham has reportedly readied a full bounded script and has also got approval from the concerned people. "#Thala55 Update - Finally things r falling in place. @menongautham script approved by all concerned, casting & logistics being worked out," entertainment industry tracker Sreedhar Pillai tweeted.
Ajith is said to be working hard in the gym to sport a slim, stylish look required for the film. Details about the film's cast and other crew members are yet to be revealed. Earlier, Anushka was reported to play the female lead for Ajith but later speculations were rife that the actress will not be part of the project. As of now, it is not clear whether Anushka will be cast in the Gautham Menon directorial.
An official announcement on the film's female lead and other crew members are expected to be made soon.
The film is not yet titled, but is tentatively called as "Thala 55" as it is Ajith's 55th film. This will be the first time that the actor will be teaming up with Gautham, who is known for several critically-acclaimed films such as "Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu", "Khakka khakka", "Vaaranam Aayiram" and "Vinnaithandi Varuvaya" among others.
Music has been a major aspect in all Gautham's films and songs in his films have turned out to be chartbusters. While the director has worked with the likes of Harrish Jeyaraj, AR Rahman and Ilayaraja in his earlier releases, he will reportedly team up with the youngest hit machine of Kollywood - composer Anirudh - for Ajith's film.
The untitled flick, which is produced by AM Ratnam, is expected to go on floors in March.
