One of the biggest superstars in Tamil cinema and south India, any news regarding actor Ajith’s films generate instant curiosity.

Similarly, Ajith’s next titled Viswasam under Siva’s direction to be produced by Sathya Jyothi Films had been announced for a Diwali release later this year.

With January coming to an end, reports now state filming on Viswasam will begin between the second and third weeks of February. In addition, the team is also determined to wrap up production most likely by July-August ensuring plenty of time for post-production.

It must be noted the last time an Ajith film came out for Diwali was in 2015 when his Vedalam smashed its way to screens becoming one of the biggest successes in his illustrious career.

Meanwhile, there have been reports stating actor Anushka Shetty is a strong contender to play the female lead, but an official announcement on the heroine and composer for Viswasam is expected to be made in the coming days.

Furthermore, Ajith’s characters in his films for the last few years have been swaying between playing a cop and a don. His role in Vivegam saw him portray an Interpol spy.

Although Viswasam at this point is being touted to be a film with a rural and urban backdrops, it is unknown as to what Ajith’s role in the film will be.

As of now, Suriya 36 under Selvaraghavan’s direction starring Suriya, Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet Singh has been announced to come out this Diwali.

In addition, another biggie, Thalapathy 62 under A. R. Murugadoss’s direction starring Vijay and Keerthy Suresh is also set for a release this Diwali.

It must be noted this battle between the three big stars of Tamil cinema will be happening after 15 years when Anjaneya, Pithamagan and Thirumalai came out for Diwali 2003.
