The Gautham Menon – Ajithkumar flick has been known as Thala 55 since day one, because it is the superstar’s 55th film, simply put, and the fans just loved it. But they also have been waiting for the real title of the flick to be revealed, along with the first look of the film, for quite some time now.
Initially, it was reported that the announcements regarding all of this will be made by Gautham Menon in the first week of August and the fans waited with bated breath. But the first week has come and gone and still no news surfaced and Gautham remains as tight lipped as ever.
What’s the reason for the delay then?
Well it seems there is an actual ‘faith’ based reason for the delay. Right now it is the Aadi season, and generally in Kollywood it is customary it seems that decisions regarding the naming of the film and such not be made or even planned during this time.
Thala 55 producer AM Ratnam too seems to be a believer in this sentiment and so he has chosen to delay the planning and announcement of such things till the end of Aadi.
And when does this season end? Well, luckily for the fans, the Aadi season ends on August 16th!
So in roughly two days time, there will be some development on this front and soon the fans will get what they want.
It was rumoured a few weeks ago that the name of the flick could be Sathya, given the character played by Ajith in the movie is Sathyadev. But that seems unlikely now… or is it?
Guess we will simply have to wait some more.
Thala 55 stars Ajith in the lead, and Trisha Krishnan and Anushka Shetty in the female leads. The supporting cast includes Arun Vijay, Thalaivasal Vijay, Baby Anikha Surendran and others.
Dan Macarthur is wielding the camera for this one while Harris Jayaraj is the man composing the tunes.
