After "Veeram" and "Vedalam," it was widely believed that the name of Siruthai Siva and Ajith's next film would begin with the letter 'V.' But it now turns out that the makers have a different title in their mind.

The buzz is that the title of their upcoming movie, which is presently referred to as "Thala 57," is 'Dhruvan.' Some unconfirmed reports have said that the makers have locked in this title, which means pole star, after a lot of consideration.

It is also said that as per numerology, it is a powerful name and catches people's attention instantly. However, the latest development has taken the industry observers by surprise as they were expecting the title of the film to begin with the letter 'V'.

In recent years, the titles of Ajith's films were announced only after the completion of a majority of the shooting. The filmmakers had maintained secrecy and generated a lot of curiosity in the fans' minds. 

The makers of "Thala 57" are also expected to follow the same trend and are unlikely to reveal the title anytime soon. Meanwhile, reports also say that the first look of the film would be released during Diwali and fans hope that the makers would unveil the name along with the posters.

"Thala 57" is a spy-thriller, which is produced by Sathyajyothi Films. Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan are playing the female leads in the movie. The film unit is currently shooting some important portions in Europe.
