The whole World Wide Web has been ablaze with rumours that Thala Ajith's 60th movie would be with director Siruthai Siva, who have together given 4 movies - Veeram, Vedhalam, Vivegam and Viswasam! Ajith is currently working on the Tamil remake of the superhit Bollywood movie Pink, directed by H Vinoth of Theeran fame, under Boney Kapoor's production. Earlier, it was confirmed that Ajith's next movie after this would also be produced by Boney Kapoor. The producer had also issued a statement that he had acquired the remake rights of the Egyptian film - Hepta: The Last Lecture, which is said to be a romantic drama revolving around a psychology specialist's last lecture on love.
Rumours were floating since then that Thala 60 would be the Tamil remake of Hepta: The Last Lecture and that it would be bringing back the Ajith-Siva duo. We got in touch with our sources close to Thala Ajith and they have categorically refuted these rumours. Our source said, "The news of Thala's 60th project being the Tamil remake of the Egyptian movie Hepta: The Last Lecture, is just a rumour. This is definitely not Ajith sir's next project. Please don't believe such rumours!"
The shoot of Thala 59 is currently happening in Hyderabad and this project also marks Bollywood diva Vidya Balan's debut in Tamil cinema. Ajith is reprising Amitabh Bachchan's role as a lawyer from the original Pink and the rest of the cast includes Shraddha Srinath, Rangaraj Pandey, Delhi Ganesh, Abhirami Venkatachalam and Andrea Tariang. Yuvan is scoring the music for Thala 59!
