The overseas distribution rights of Ajith's upcoming Thala 57 have been sold for a record price even before the completion of its first schedule.
Touted to be an international spy thriller, the film features Ajith as a secret agent. Directed by Siva, it is bankrolled by Sathya Jyothi Films. Kajal Aggarwal will be seen playing Ajith's wife while Akshara Haasan will be seen in an action-oriented role.
We hear from credible sources that the overseas rights have been reportedly snapped up for over Rs. 20 crores, which is a record in Kollywood. This business record is being attributed to the massive box office success of previous films, Veeram and Vedalam, from the duo.
The regular shoot of Thala 57 commenced recently in Belgrade and the film will be continuously shot over the course of next 40 days across several exotic places in Europe.
If everything goes as planned, the makers are planning to complete the project in three months and the film will hit the screens early next year.
