Thala 59 is a remake of the Hindi film ‘Pink’ starring Amitabh Bachan and Tapsee Pannu.
The sources said that the creative producer of ‘Pink’ Shoojith Sircar has confirmed that ‘Thala 59’ is indeed the remake of his film and has also revealed that H. Vinod is making changes to the script to suit the superstar status of Ajith. Sircar also said that though he liked Anirudha’s rendering of the story in Hindi he respects the decision of the Tamil team to effect changes.
Thala Ajith will be playing the role of an aging lawyer who takes up the case of three women in a sexual assault case. It is said that the shooting will start in the third week of December when the rest of the cast and crew details will be unveiled.
