Hairstyle is an important aspect of an actors' look. Some stars like Tamil actor Ajith often try new styles to keep up with the changing times. 

Earlier, it had been reported that in his latest movie, "Thala 56", he would don his tried-and-tested salt-and-pepper look. However, his fans were surprised to learn that in the flick, he will sport another distinct look. The latest buzz is that he will also sport short hair, which he had flaunted in his hit film "Red". 

Ajith will sport short hair for a flashback portion, for which the actor is currently shooting in Chennai. More details on the same are awaited.

In his two-decade-long career, Ajith has changed his hairstyle time and again. In recent years, he was seen sporting spiked hair with long side burns in "Aasal". Later, he opted for George Clooney-like salt-and-pepper look in "Mankatha", "Arrambam" and "Veeram". In "Yennai Arindhaal", he sported three distinct looks.

Meanwhile, the title of "Thala 56" was supposed to be announced on Ganesh Chathurthi (17 September) along with the first look release of the flick. But, the makers postponed it due to the release of the first look of Rajinikanth's "Kabali".

It has been speculated that the issues related to the title had not been solved then, forcing the makers to postpone their plans. Meanwhile, the new date for the release of the title of the movie as well as its first look has not been revealed as yet .

"Thala 56" has been written and directed by Siruthai Siva. The movie has been produced by AM Rathnam. Shruti Haasan has romanced Ajith in the movie and Lakshmi Menon plays the role of the actor's sister in the flick, which will hit the screens around Diwali.
