The shooting of Vijay’s blockbuster film Kaththi was kick-started in Kolkata. Now, Ajith’s next movie, which is formally called Thala 56, is likely to begin in Kolkata.
If buzz is to be believed, director Siva with his assistants is busy finalising locations for the shooting of Thala 56. The director has actually short-listed a few locations in Kolkata to kick-start the shooting.
Kollywood filmmakers had often preferred Mumbai when they opt to shoot films outside South India. AR Murugadoss broke the trend with Kaththi and now yet another biggie is set to be shot in Kolkata. It might pave way for a new trend of shooting films in the West Bengal’s capital city.
The hunt for the female lead has continued even as there are strong rumours that Shruti Haasan has bagged the movie to play the love interest of Ajith in Thala 56. Other details about the cast and crew are under wraps.
Meanwhile, Ajith, who became a proud father of a baby boy recently, is basking in the success of Yennai Arindhaal directed by Gautham Menon.
