A question that many Ajith fans have been pondering for quite sometime now - who will play the female lead opposite to 'Thala' in the upcoming Viswasam.

Up until now, there were reports actor Anushka Shetty was being eyed by Sathya Jyothi Films to be cast as the heroine.

That said, we now have the first official confirmation on who will be the equivalent to Ajith in Viswasam to be directed by Siva scheduled to release on Diwali.

Actor Ajith’s manager Suresh Chandra took to his Twitter page moments back to announce 'Lady Superstar' Nayanthara has been cast as the heroine in Viswasam.

It must be noted this will be fourth time the two will be collaborating after their previous smash hit, Arrambam, in 2013.

The 'Thala' and 'Lady Superstar' combo first came together in the 2007 blockbuster, Billa.

They again teamed up in 2008 for the action rom-com, Aegan.

Their association for a fourth time will no doubt send fans of both the stars into a state of euphoria.
