Ashwin with Ajith
A still from "Mankatha".IB Times India

Ashwin Kakumanu is the latest celebrity to join the shoots of Ajith's "Thala 56". He shared his excitement of working with the "Arrambam" actor once again.

He took to his Facebook account and explained in detail about his meeting with Ajith.

"I normally don't post too many updates about my interaction with Ajith sir's set but thought I'd post this. Yesterday I dropped into the sets of Thala 56. First, I met Silva Master's stunt fighters who I had not met since "Mankatha", the actor posted.

"They congratulated me on my work. Kabir is going to be a great antagonist in the film, and was giving his 100%. Siva sir has got a nice treat in the making. Lots of special things in store for fans and the audience! (theme Verithanam!) Lastly, when Ajith sir introduced me to Kabir Singh he said 'This is Ashwin, he acted with me in Mankatha, he's a good actor'", he added. "I thought that was a very sweet gesture on his part coming from a senior actor. It stuck with me till today so thought I'd share. So all in all, good energies from Thala 56!"

Ashwin had earlier worked with Ajith in Venkat Prabhu's blockbuster "Mankatha". They both were seen in the roles of corrupted cops. We have to wait and see what Ashwin is playing in the forthcoming Tamil movie.

Apart from Ashwin, the others in the cast are Soori, Kabir Duhan Singh, Lakshmi Menon as Ajith's sister and Shruti Haasan, who will be seen as the female lead opposite Ajith for the first time.

Going by speculations, "Thala 56" is a brother-sister sentimental story. The movie is written and directed by Siruthai Siva and produced by AM Rathnam.
