Vivek Oberoi has finally confirmed that he is a part of Ajith's upcoming movie, which is currently being referred to as Thala 57. He has now broken his silence about his role in the Tamil movie.

Vivek said that he has already completed his first schedule of shooting and is getting ready to join the crew again. "I am starting to shoot again for my first Tamil film with the one and only superstar Ajith. I call him Ajith anna. I am really excited to play a really kick-ass role with him," the Bollywood actor told the media.

Vivek is playing the role of an antagonist in Thala 57. He is said to have a powerful role, rivalling Ajith's. The Bollywood actor is apparently playing an international don.

The latest schedule of shooting began last week in Europe. The team will be canning important sequences between the main characters in this schedule, which is expected to last for about two months.

Thala 57 was launched in August this year, and things have gone as per the makers' plans so far. They want to wrap up the shooting in January, following which the post-production work will begin. The Tamil movie will hit the screens in April.

The upcoming movie is a spy thriller in which Ajith plays the role of an investigating officer. Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan are the two female leads in the film, which also stars Thambi Ramaiah, Karunakaran and Rajendran. 

Produced by Sathyajyothi Films, Thala 57 is written and directed by Siruthai Siva.
