It is reported that Bobby Simha, the actor who has dabbled in a variety of roles in his short stint in Kollywood thus far, is all set to play Ajith’s villain in his upcoming film to be directed by Shiva.
Titled as AK-57 by Ajith’s fans, the 57th film in Ajith’s career has him getting paired up opposite the slim-n-svelte Kajal Aggarwal for the first time. Akshara Haasan, younger sister of Shruti Haasan, makes her debut in Tamil films with this film by playing Ajith’s younger sister.
After successful films such as Veeram and Vedalam, Shiva gets to direct Ajith for the third time in this untitled film whose first schedule of shoot has just commenced in Sofia, Bulgaria. Names of Prasanna and ‘action king’ Arjun were considered to play the antagonist in the film but it now turns out that Shiva has chosen Bobby Simha, the national award-winning actor, for the role.
A formal announcement confirming this is likely to be made in the coming days, it is reliably learnt. It may be recalled that Simha was seen in a negative role also in his latest film Metro which released in theatres a couple of months back.
