Thala 60: After ‘Pink’ remake, Ajith to team up with ‘Mankatha’ director Venkat Prabhu?
Thala Ajith is currently in Hyderabad shooting for his new movie directed by H Vinoth of ‘Theeran’ fame. The movie, tentatively titled Thala 59 aka AK 59, is the official remake of acclaimed Hindi film, ‘Pink’. Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor, husband of late actress Sridevi, is entering K-Town by producing this movie. As reported by us earlier, Boney Kapoor has signed a two film deal with Ajith. After the ‘Pink’ remake, it was said that Vinoth himself will be directing Ajith’s next film as well, for Boney Kapoor’s banner.
However, latest reports suggest that Venkat Prabhu is the front runner to helm the film (Thala 60). The actor-director duo had earlier collaborated for ‘Mankatha’, which emerged as one of the biggest hits in the star’s career. Though there are speculations in social medias about a possible sequel to the movie, Kollywood medias report that Venkat Prabhu is working on a fresh subject.
The director’s next film is ‘Maaanadu’, a political thriller starring Simbu in the lead. Shoot for the movie is expected to commence shortly.
