Gautham Vasudev Menon has revealed that the ‘Thala 55’ is all about the life history of a man between the age of 28-38. Having heard the story; Ajith himself suggested 4 makeovers for his role, and experimented with his favorite salt & pepper look, toned young man, rugged angry man, and the fourth look is yet to be revealed.
Gautham is all praise for Ajith’s involvement in the story and mentioned that the movie will be entirely different compared to Thala’s career so far.
Ajith has taken the extra step to learn guitar and boxing to look authentic. Thala has undergone a rigorous training for more than a month to get in shape for a younger look. Arun Vijay, who is playing the baddie in the film; is helping Ajith to get the dream shape.
