Siruthai Siva's favourite Tamanna Bhatia might collaborate with him again if everything falls into place. Rumour has it that she is the front runner to bag the female lead in his next movie with Ajith that is currently being referred to as "Thala 57".

The director has reportedly approached the "Baahubali" actress to play the female lead role in his next film. It is not confirmed whether the actress has given her nod as she already has a few film in her kitty.

The industry observers feel that Tamanna Bhatia had a pleasant experience and memories working with the director in his earlier films "Siruthai" and "Veeram", respectively. Only countable actresses have been got the opportunity to be paired with Ajith in more than one movie. Hence, she is unlikely to reject the offer unless the 26-year-old cannot allot the dates due to her busy schedule.

In the coming months, Tamanna Bhatia will be occupied with SS Rajamouli's mega budget project "Baahubali: The Conclusion", bilingual film "Thozha" ("Oopiri" in Telugu), "Dharma Durai" starring Vijay Sethupathi and Telugu film "Speedunnodu". Apparently, her bulk dates are required for the second instalment of "Baahubali". So, she has not given her confirmation yet for Siva's flick.

"Thala 57" is likely go on floors in May. Ajith is still recovering from the multiple surgeries that he underwent towards the end of 2015. Currently, Siruthai Siva is working on the script and he is also finalising the cast and crew. The Tamil film will light the screens for Diwali. Other details about the flick have been kept under wraps.

Ajith and Siruthai Siva have earlier worked in "Veeram" and "Vedalam". Both the films had done well at the box office. As a result, people are expecting the film to be bigger and better this time.
