CHENNAI: The entire cast of Ajith-Gautham Menon thriller Thala 55 is headed to Malaysia on Tuesday where they will shoot for a marathon three weeks and move towards conclusion.

The crew would have been in a slightly rocky place when news got out that Trisha, who plays one of the female leads alongside Anushka, is killed in the climax — a scene that was canned earlier this week during the shoot along locations on the East Coast Road. “It is unfortunate that people are making a big deal about this.

The team is focused on finishing the shoot and quickly move towards the graphics portion for Ajith’s characters. We are looking at a release in early November, as we don’t want a situation similar to Pongal where Veeram and Jilla released together,” he said. While both films did brisk business in their own right, their individual earnings may have been substantially larger had they released independently. Gautham Menon knows best, at any rate!
