After many rounds of speculations, here is yet another rumour on the antagonist in Ajith's next film. The latest buzz on the villain in the flick, which is presently referred to as Thala 57, is that the hero himself will be seen in the negative role!

Well, it means that Ajith will be doing dual roles of the hero and the villain. Rumours are rife that the actor will be pulling off the role of an investigating officer as well as a deadly villain in the international spy thriller.

If true, it is not the first time where Ajith has done dual roles. He was seen in more than a character in films like Vaali, Villain, Varalaaru and Asal. The interesting part of the story is that the success rate is high in the films that he appeared in multiple roles.

Earlier, the names of Arvind Swami and Prasanna were doing rounds for the role of baddie in Thala 57. Recently, some unconfirmed reports had claimed that a Bollywood actor will be seen in the negative role.

As of now, it has been confirmed that Thambi Ramaiah, Karunakaran, Appukutty and Rajendran are in the supporting roles with Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan playing the female leads in Siruthai Siva-directorial film.

Meanwhile, Ajith is getting ready for the second schedule of the shooting. It will commence soon at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad.
