The excitement around Ajith’s forthcoming Thala 57 is getting stronger with each passing day despite the fact that the film is still months away from its theatrical release. A picture of Ajith at the shooting location was shared by the film’s director Siva on his Twitter page. And Thala fans can’t help but go gaga over their fit-looking favourite star.
We had earlier written about Ajith’s transformation for his upcoming espionage thriller. For months now, he had been working on his physique in preparation for his role in Thala 57. In the film, he plays the role of an Interpol officer.
The latest picture of Ajith is a clear attempt by the filmmakers to give a glimpse of what they have in store for the actor’s fans. The picture has been drawing a lot of reactions on social media from fans and Kollywood celebrities alike.
“Nice to see Ajith sir back at his fittest.He was one person who appreciated me when I got to my goal.Wishing him the best as always (sic) #Ak57 (sic),” tweeted actor Vikram Prabhu.
