The Bollywood actor Rahul Dev, who is a familiar face in the South Indian film industry as well, will be seen in one of the most anticipated films of the year. If reports are to be believed, the stylish villain will play an important role in Ajith’s 56th movie. Sources say that he has already completed a few scenes for the film. However, Kabeer Singh is said to be the main baddie in the film.

The film is currently being referred to as Thala 56, but there are rumours that the film might be titled as Vetti Vilas. The confirmation on the title is expected soon.

Directed by Siruthai Siva, Thala 56 stars Ajith and Shruti Haasan in the lead with Lakshmi Menon playing vital role. Actors Ashwin Kakumanu, Kabeer Singh, Soori and many others form the supporting cast. Under the production of A. M. Rathnam, the film is likely to be a Diwali release.
