Thala Ajith is likely to take on a rural avatar in his next flick directed by Siruthai Siva. We hear that the shoot will commence from the first week of April in Hyderabad, which is touted to be the actor's all-time favourite location.
A source close to the actor says, "He has been working on urban characters in his recent films. For a change, he wanted to try a rural role this time. Many of his fans have requested him to take up such a role. So, his film with Siruthai Siva will be a rural-based script. The crew is also expected to shoot in the southern districts of Tamil Nadu."
At this point, even the title of this rural based film is not confirmed. The source adds, "Ajith wanted to tone down a little bit on the hero-centric titles. He doesn't want any title based on the name of his character in the film. He prefers a title that will be apt for the story — not his role. That's why the production team has been working hard to come up with an interesting title for the film. He has also been requesting directors to avoid songs and dialogues praising him in the film. He doesn't want his character to deviate from the script."
