The second schedule of Ajith's forthcoming film is underway in Hyderabad. The makers kick-started the filming process a few days ago at the Ramoji Film City.
As per the reports, the makers have planned to shoot some key portions for the next 20 days at the Ramoji Film City. However, the team might take a short break to celebrate Diwali festival. Following the successful completion of the Hyderabad schedule, the Tamil film unit will reportedly leave for West Bengal.
The movie, which is presently being referred to as Thala 57, hit the floors on July 6 with a formal pooja. But the regular shooting of Thala 57 commenced only in August. The first schedule was held in Europe and scenes involving Ajith and Kajal Aggarwal along with others were shot.
The team will reportedly leave for the US in November. Thala 57 is an international-spy thriller and hence will majorly be shot in foreign countries, say reports.
Thala 57 witnesses Siruthai Siva collaborating with Ajith for the third time, after Veeram and Vedalam. Sathya Jyothi Films is bankrolling the movie, which is expected to be released in May 2017.
Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan are the female leads in the movie, which also stars Thambi Ramaiah, Karunakaran, Appukutty, Rajendran and others. However, the makers are yet to finalise the antagonist of the flick. There are reports doing the rounds that Ajith is playing dual roles in the film. But there is no confirmation on this yet.
Anirudh Ravichander is the music director of the film, which will showcase Vetri's cinematography and Anthony L Ruben's editing.
