Reports suggest that Boney Kapoor will bankroll the project, which is tentatively called Thala 59. AR Rahman is expected to score the music.
The buzz is that Tamil superstar Ajith will next join hands with director H. Vinoth of Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru fame. Some of the biggest names of Indian cinema are expected to work on the project, including Bollywood filmmaker Boney Kapoor.
Reports suggest that Boney will bankroll the project, which is tentatively called Thala 59. Oscar-winner AR Rahman is expected to score the music. Thala 59 is apparently the official remake of Pink. The 2016 Bollywood film received accolades for highlighting the importance of consent.
Pink was written by Shoojit Sircar, Ritesh Shah and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury. Aniruddha helmed the project. Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Kirti Kulhari among others played important roles in the movie.
The makers of the Tamil remake are expected to make an official announcement post Diwali.
According to reports, Ajith approached Boney Kapoor to produce the movie as he had promised late actor Sridevi during the filming of English Vinglish that he will do a film with Boney Kapoor’s production house.
Ajith is currently busy shooting for his fourth film with director Siva. The film titled Viswasam is getting ready to hit the screens on Pongal.
