The latest speculations in K’town are that Ajith’s Thala 57 will be bankrolled by either Suresh Balajee’s Wide Angle Creations or Sathya Jyothi Films. Ajith earlied worked with Wide Angle in Billa 2, which did not mint enough money at the box office.
Earlier, there were reports that AGS Entertainment will fund the film but now reliable sources confirm that Sathya Jyothi Films is the leading choice to produce the film with Ajith Kumar.
Ajith is currently on a sabbatical after his knee surgery and is likely to start the project in June 2016. The film will be produced by director Siva who worked with Ajith back to back in Veeram and Vedalam.
