After a gap of four years, Nazriya Nazim seems to be ready to make her comeback to Tamil films. The actress is reportedly acting alongside Ajith in his next movie, a remake of hit Hindi film Pink.

The buzz on the internet says that Nazriya Nazim is stepping into the shoes of Taapsee Pannu, who played the role of a woman who is sexually harassed. It is a strong role which has a lot of scope for performance and looks like a tailor-made character for the actress.

Nazriya Nazim had landed in a controversy over a few scenes in Dhanush's Naiyaandi in 2013. The actress had complained that the makers shot a few objectionable scenes without her consent using body double and her image was being tarnished.

Thereafter, Nazriya was not seen much in Kollywood and her last release was Thirumanam Enum Nikkah in 2014.

Coming back to the film, which is presently referred to as Thala 59, Bollywood producer and husband of late Sridevi, Boney Kapoor is funding the project. H Vinoth is directing the film, which is most likely to release on May 1.

Ajith Kumar will reprise the role of a lawyer which was enacted by Amitabh Bachchan in Pink.
