The Buzz on "Thala 55"

While the official date on the commencement of the film is out, still there are details that fans would be eager to know about - Ajith's role, film's cast and crew.

So far, there has been a buzz that Ajith will be playing the role of investigative officer. Anushka Shetty and Harris Jayaraj have reportedly been approached to be the female lead role and music composer, respectively.

It was speculated that Arvind Swamy and Arun Vijay will be donning the role of villains. The "Bombay" actor has denied playing villain role without mentioning the film's name. On the other hand, there has not been any clarification from Arun Vijay.

Fans may need to wait a little longer to get complete details about the big budget entertainer.
