The new Ajith-Gautham Menon film is all set to go on floors by the end of February.

After the stupendous success of "Veeram", Ajith fans are eagerly waiting to get updates about his upcoming project. The Ajith-Gautham project was announced prior to "Veeram" release, and  it was reported that the actor would begin the film from 15 February 2014.

However, it now seems the date has been pushed to February end. The buzz is that the film will kick-start on 27 February as Thursday appears to be a lucky day for AM Ratnam, the producer of the Ajith starrer.

This is the first time that Ajith is teaming up with Gautham. The untitled flick will have Anushka Shetty playing the female lead, with the actress expected to join the team on the first day itself. However, an official confirmation is still awaited on this. Details about other cast members are also yet to be revealed.

Expectations are high on the project as the Ajith-Gautham-Ratnam team is likely to come out with nothing short of a spectacular film.

Ajith, who has sported a salt-and-pepper hairstyle in his recent releases, will reportedly shed that look. The buzz is that the actor will appear in a distinct look in the new film. Sources close to Ajith have confirmed to Indiaglitz that the actor will have a new look, and it will be guarded until the film hits the screens.

After completing the film, Ajith will undergo a surgery for injuries he sustained during the shoot of "Arrambam." The actor has been delaying the surgery to accommodate his film commitments. But he has reportedly decided to undergo the procedure in September this year, when the Gautham directorial is likely to be completed.
