Actress Shraddha Srinath, who was last seen in Richie, has announced that she has joined the Thala 59 team. Directed by H Vinoth of Sathuranga Vettai fame, the film is an official remake of Hindi film Pink starring Amitabh Bachchan and Tapsee Pannu in the lead.

Taking to twitter, Shraddha confirmed speculations. In a series of tweets, the actress said that she would play one of the most challenging role in her life. Speculation is that she might play the role played by Tapsee Pannu in the original film.

Produced by Boney Kapoor under his home banner Bayview Projects LLP, the film stars Ajith and Vidya Balan, while Adhik Ravichandran, Arjun Chidambaram, Abhirami Venkatachalam, Andrea Tariang, Aswin Rao and Sujith Shankar play pivotal roles. While the music is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, the cinematography for the film is done by Nirav Shah and editing done by Gokul Chandran.

It was earlier reported that Nazriya Nazim may reprise Taapsee Pannu’s role, and Rangaraj Pandey might play Piyush Mishra, the advocate who went against Amitabh Bachchan in the original movie. Adhik Ravichandran will play one of the three main antagonists in the film.


Talking about the cast, producer Boney Kapoor in a press statement told, “It’s nice to introduce Vidya  Balan to the Tamil audience. She is paired with Ajith Kumar and  her role is a very special . Shraddha Srinath has been displaying plenty of promise and we are casting her in the pivotal role. Rangaraj Pandey plays a very important character too.”

“Vinoth has proved himself to be a master of versatile craftsmanship in his previous movies.  His discipline and distinct commitment in translating words into pictures absolutely as promised is brilliant,” he added about the director.

While talking about the film, Kapoor told, “I am happy now to see that the entire project is getting materialized and is proceeding at a brisk pace. Moreover, I feel happy as my travel with Ajith Kumar isn’t going to be limited merely with a film, but we will immediately start working on a new film from July 2019 that will have a huge release in April 2020.”
