It is confirmed that Ajith's next film will be directed by Siruthai Siva. Remember Ajith and Siva combinations Veeram was a hit and given Ajith an all new commercial mass image.
Thala 56 will start sometime by the end of the year after Ajith completes his Gautham Menon film and later undergoes a surgery. The film is likely to be produced by a corporate. The front-runner at the moment is PVP Cinemas.
Siva is currently giving finishing touches to the script in Bangalore. Meanwhile Siva will be doing a film with Salman Khan next year, which is likely to be a remake of his Veeram.
