Thala 57 will mark the third collaboration of Ajith and director Siva after Veeram and Vedalam
Ajith Kumar, who underwent knee surgery at a private hospital in Chennai on November 12, has been advised complete rest for the next three months. Ajith injured his knee while shooting the climax sequence of his Tamil film Vedalam, which is successfully running in cinemas
The grand opening of actor Ajith's film Vedalam is being seen as a new high at the Tamil box office. Experts say it's the biggest ever opening, beating even superstar Rajinikanth's Lingaa that clocked Rs 13 crores last year. Many now look at Thala, as he's fondly called, as the next superstar in the making
Trade analyst Trinath told IANS, "With Rs 15.3 crores on the day of its release in Tamil Nadu, Vedalam has become the biggest grosser in Tamil cinema, surpassing the previous record of Kaththi, starring Vijay, which had grossed Rs 14.3 crores on the first day"
