It has been a very well known fact that Vijay Sethupathi happens to be a hard core fan of Ajith Kumar and has been consistently admiring his works. He has indeed spoken about the charisma of Thala and his irresistible admiration for him.
Recently, there were reports claiming that he would be seen playing the baddie in Ajith Kumar tentatively titled ‘Thala 57’, directed by Siruthai fame Siva, who has already delivered couple of hits with Ajith Kumar titled ‘Veeram’ and ‘Vedalam’ has teamed up again third time. The shooting for this film will go on floors from this August and the release is scheduled for somewhere in April 2017.
Meanwhile, it is claimed to be rumours that Vijay Sethupathi was approached for the negative role, but on the other end, we get to hear that Vijay Sethupathi was actually interested in taking up this role, regrettably, couldn’t make it as he was busy occupied with lots of projects, including the magnum opus that comes from KV Anand, which is produced at a whopping budget by AGS Entertainment. The film reportedly features Manjima Mohan of ‘Accham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada’ fame in female lead role.
