Actor Ajith was last seen in Vivegam in 2017 which was one of the biggest releases of 2017 and Ajith’s career as well. Directed by Siva, Vivegam had Ajith play the role of an armed officer while Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi played his friend in the film. The film was one of the top hits of 2017 and topped the charts of the year. Ajith is now said to be teaming up with director Siva again for a film titled Viswasam which was officially launched a month ago, without much hype. The makers had roped in music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja to compose the music album of the film and had even officially announced it too. However, nothing much was heard about it since then. Reports are now doing rounds that Yuvan Shankar Raja may have been replaced and the makers have brought Anirudh Ravichander onboard to render the music album. It is, however, not yet confirmed if Anirudh has given his go ahead for this film too and will be teaming up with the Ajith-Siva combo for the third time.
According to reports, fans of Ajith were quite kicked about the combination of Ajith and Yuvan Shankar Raj who are teaming up after a long gap, however, director Siva seems to be more inclined to have Anirudh Ravichander for the film. Reports reveal that Siva wants Anirudh onboard since the music of the film played a very important role in the previous two films – Vivegam and Vedalam. Viswasam is being produced by Sathya Jyothi Films which had produced by the previous combination of Ajith and Siva – Vivegam. The film is slated to be released during Diwali this year and may tussle it out with films of other big stars – Vijay and Suriya – who have films with AR Murugadoss and Selvaraghavan respectively.
