Comedians Karunakaran and Sathish are in talks for Ajith’s Thala 57 which is likely to kickstart in June last week. The pooja will happen next month once Ajith comes back from his short vacation in Goa.
Sources say Santhanam has backed out from the film after he kept the team in waiting for quite some time. Director Siva is planning to shoot the film in major overseas locations in Europe and the US.
Produced by Sathya Jyothi Films, Thala 57 will have music composed by Anirudh Ravichander. Ritika Singh and Anusha Shetty are also in talks to play the female leads. Anthony Ruben is expected to take care of the film’s editing.
