On the work front, the actor is set to begin work on his next, which is tentatively being referred to as AK62. After Vignesh Shivan's ouster from the film, there has been no official confirmation on who will direct Ajith's next, though Kalagathalaivan Magizh Thirumeni's name is on the top of the list. The film will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions. The shoot for the film was supposed to begin by the end of 2022, according to the official press release and Anirudh was roped in as the film's music composer. It is said that the makers were quite unhappy with the script after the long pre-production time.
