Thala 59: ‘Pink’ Tamil remake starring Ajith launched

As we had already reported, actor Ajith’s next (Thala 59) will be directed by H Vinoth of ‘Theeran’ fame. Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor, husband of late actress Sridevi, is making his K-Town debut with this movie. A customary pooja ceremony was held today in Chennai. Ajith or other cast members were not present for the pooja.

As speculated earlier, Thala 59 is the official remake of acclaimed Hindi film, ‘Pink’. The movie directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury is a social-drama that had Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang in lead roles. The movie discusses some sensitive issues about women’s rights and dignity. It won widespread critical acclaim and bagged the National film award for Best Film on other social issues.

According to the makers, Pink’s Tamil version will not be a scene by scene remake. The script has been adapted to suit the sensibilities of the audience. Ajith will be reprising Amitabh Bachchan’s role of brooding lawyer. The original film didn’t have any scope for commercial elements, so it remains to be see how the remake is being adapted to make it appealing to Ajith’s fans. The makers are yet to officially announce the cast or crew. AR Rahman and DOP Nirav Shah are said to be part of the crew, but we still have to wait for a confirmation.

Meanwhile, Ajith’s ‘Viswasam’, directed by Siva, is gearing up for release. The movie is slated to hit screens worldwide for Pongal in January.
