soori joins thals 56 film-santhanam has no days

The shooting of Ajith’s next film starts today — on the outskirts of Chennai. We know everything else about the film – that it is being directed by Siruthai Siva, that it has Shruti Haasan opposite Ajith, that after approaching Nitya Menen and Sri Divya, the role of Ajith’s sister finally went to Lakshmi Menon. (As a source said, “She has been finalised for the role, and will start shooting today.”)

The latest from the set, however, is that Soori will be joining the cast of this film as a comedian. A source says, “Earlier Santhanam was considered for this role, but since he has already committed to a couple of films as hero, he has no dates to allot now. So, Soori has been finalised. Ajith’s schedule also starts today, and one song has also been recorded by Anirudh, who is composing music for this film.”
