Post-Vedalam, which was a grand success, it all took a long way for the same trio Ajith Kumar-Siruthai Siva-Anirudh to come up with their new venture. Finally after several months of pre-production, the shooting of tentatively titled AK 57 is all set to happen from next week.
As a part of principal photography, the first leg of shooting will be held in Bulgaria, where important sequences would be shot inside NU Boyana Film Studios. Apparently, this happens to be the biggest ever studio in Europe, where some of the most prominent Hollywood movies like The Expendables were shot.
The film is directed by Siruthai fame Siva, who earlier worked with Ajith Kumar in couple of movies like Veeram and Vedalam. Kajal Aggarwal has been signed to play the female lead role in this movie, which reportedly features Akshara Haasan in an important character. The film also has Karunakaran playing an important role alongside Ajith Kumar and a top league actor has been signed to play the baddie.
