Chennai, April 16:
Actress Lakshmi Menon will be seen playing Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar’s sister in the actor’s yet-untitled 56th film, which is expected to go on floors soon.
“The makers have finally zeroed in on Lakshmi Menon for the role of Ajith’s sister. Nithya Menen was initially offered the role but she turned it down for reasons unknown,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
To be directed by Siruthai Siva, the film features Shruti Haasan as the female lead.
This is the second time Siva and Ajith have teamed up after their last successful outing “Veeram”.
Anirudh Ravichander, the young music sensation, has been roped in to compose tunes for the movie. (IANS)
