Sathya Jyothi Films, the makers of Thala Ajith’s next Tamil outing Viswasam had a low-profile launch in Chennai on Thursday and confirmed that the principal shooting will commence from January 2018. Barring Ajith, the rest of the crew along with director Siva attended the opening ceremony.

The project marks the fourth consecutive collaboration between Ajith and Siva. While many believed that after the debacle of Vivegam, Ajith and Siva might take a break and work on a different combination, they’ve reunited for this project. Apparently, Ajith insisted that Siva work with him again on a rural-based script and the film will feature Ajith in a brand new avatar. It is believed that Ajith will dye his hair black and sport a new look for the film and his new look has already leaked online.

Last seen working with Ajith in Aarrambam, Viswasam will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. This reunion with Yuvan has sent fans into a tizzy. The makers are yet to make an official announcement regarding Yuvan’s inclusion in the project but sources close to the makers Sathya Jyothi Films, have confirmed the reports. After working with Anirudh Ravichander in Vedalam and Vivegam, this is the first time Siva will join hands with Yuvan Shankar Raja, who has also worked with Ajith in hit films such as Dheena and Billa. The new project will be made on a much lesser budget than Vivegam, which was a whopping Rs. 120 crore action spectacle. The project is gearing up for Diwali 2018 release and it is believed to clash with Vijay-Murugadoss film and Suriya’s next film with director Selvaraghavan at the box-office. If the three projects make it for Diwali, it’ll be the biggest clash the industry would have ever witnessed.

There were also rumours that Ajith might team up with Vikram Vedha director duo Pushkar-Gayatri next. However, director Pushkar clarified that they’re still scripting their next project and were pleasantly surprised to hear rumours about their collaboration with Ajith. Though they denied the reports, he also said that nobody would miss an opportunity to work with Ajith.

Ajith played an Interpol agent and was paired with Kajal Aggarwal in Vivegam. The film was entirely shot across exotic locations in Europe and it also marked the debut of Vivek Oberoi and Akshara Haasan in Tamil filmdom. While Vivek played the antagonist, Akshara played a hacker. Despite earning over Rs. 100 crore in no time, the film bombed at the box-office.
