Thala Ajith who is riding high on the box office success of his latest venture Viswasam, is getting ready to fill in the shoes of a lawyer for his next film. This movie, with the working title Thala 59, is the official remake of Amitabh Bachchan starrer Pink.
Pink had actress Taapsee Pannu playing an important role and her character was the center force of attraction, helping in taking the film forward. Post the humongous response to her character and performance, Taapsee entered the big league of Bollywood in style, and has created a classy niche for herself.
Her role is to be reprised by actress Shraddha Srinath of Vikram Vedha and Ivan Thanthiran fame, in Thala 59. On hearing about this announcement, Taapsee took to Twitter to share a congratulatory message.
Apart from Ajith and Shraddha Srinath, Thala 59 also has Vidya Balan playing one of the leads, with Rangaraj Pandey, Arjun Chidambaram, Adhik Ravichandran and Abhirami Venkatachalam in pivotal roles. Directed by H Vinoth of Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru fame, this courtroom drama will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and cinematography by Nirav Shah. If things go as per plan, Thala fans can hope to watch this film in the summer of 2019.
