Yuvan Shankar Raja joins H Vinoth-Ajith's Thala 60?
The composer has been receiving accolades for his subtle and efficient background score in the recently-released Nerkonda Paarvai
Even as Ajith Kumar's Nerkonda Paarvai — the first collaboration between actor, director H Vinoth, and producer Boney Kapoor — is running in theatres, updates about their next have started doing the rounds. AK 60 aka Thala 60, again directed by Vinoth, is said to be an original script — an action-packed entertainer that will be made on a massive budget.
The latest speculation about Thala 60 is that Yuvan Shankar Raja, who composed the music for Nerkonda Paarvai, has been roped in for this project too. Interestingly, Yuvan has been receiving accolades for his subtle and efficient background score in Nerkonda Paarvai.
Meanwhile, reports are rife that Jhanvi Kapoor will be making her Tamil debut with this project, playing a pivotal role. It's also being said that Arun Vijay, who previously played a key role in Gautham Menon's 2015 action thriller Yennai Arindhaal, has been roped in to play the antagonist in the action film.
Ajith, interestingly, seems to have shed quite a few kilos to look the part of the racer. Producer Boney Kapoor had also revealed that the film will capitalise on the actor's passion for racing. Thala 60 is expected to be shot in locations like Budapest, South Africa, and the Middle East.
An official announcement regarding the film is expected soon.
