Ready for Ajith's Vedalam?

September 27, 2015 10:00 IST

A lowdown on what's happening in the Tamil film industry.

Poster of Vedalam

Ajith fans, your wait is over!

The actor's 56th film, which was earlier called Thala 56, will now be called Vedalam.

The poster has Ajith stylishly dressed in red, with a stud in his ear and a silver chain around his neck.

Vedalam refers to a ghost-like being from Hindu mythology, so the title is sure to keep his fans guessing. 

Shruti Haasan will play the female lead while Lakshmi Menon will play Ajith's sister. The music has been composed by Anirudh Ravichander.

The film is directed by Siruthai Siva. This is Ajith's second film with the director; Siva had earlier directed the superhit film Veeram

Vedalam is likely to hit the theatres on Diwali.
