Thala Ajith is all set to be in his next film tentatively titled as 'Thala 59'. His film was much anticipated by the fans, thanks to his performances in the last films. Now, Midday reports that this film will be the remake of Shoojit Sircar-directed Pink starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead. Ajith will step into this courtroom drama for his fans down south. This film will be produced by Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor and directed by H Vinoth.

Do you know that it was the late legendary actress and Boney's wife Sridevi's wish which is why Thala Ajith is doing this film? On the diva's 55th birth anniversary this year, South columnist Sreedhar Pillai shared on the social media that Thala Ajith is doing the film to keep Sridevi's promise.

He tweeted, "Today is late #Sridevi’s birth anniversary. Sources say #BoneyKapoor is all set to start #ThalaAjith’s next film. The star is keeping a promise that he had made to the late actress during the time of the #EnglishVinglish shoot. The new #Ajith film will be directed by #Vinoth."

We can totally imagine Thala Ajith nailing the role of the lawyer in this hard-hitting movie remake. However, we wonder who plays the role of Taapsee, Kriti Kulhari, Andria Tariang, Angad Bedi as their roles were equally impressive. Will Amitabh Bachchan give some tips on the role or will Ajith do it in his own way is to be seen.

Meanwhile, Big B is all set to star in Thugs of Hindostan starring Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. He will also be seen in Brahmastra starring Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and Mouni Roy in the lead.
