Ajith, the PhantomPublished: September 28, 2015
Ajith’s role in his upcoming film ‘Vedalam’, directed by Siruthai Siva, is said to be inspired by the iconic fictional character Phantom. “That’s why the title has been chosen,” sources say.
“Wherever and whenever evil strikes, Ajith will be there and do good to the needy. Besides, the film will also deal with sensitive issues like eve teasing,” sources in the know add.
Last week, the first look and the title were officially announced. The thala was seen in the first look in a stylish tonsured salt and pepper getup, with a red shirt.
Produced by A M Rathnam, the film has music by Anirudh. Shruti Haasan is Ajith’s love interest, while Lakshmi Menon plays his sister. It has been announced that ‘Vedhalam’ would hit the screens for Deepavali.
