Only a day ago, the makers of the upcoming Tamil film Thug Life, officially announced that Silambarasan will be part of the Kamal Haasan-starrer film. Reports say that he will be playing the role that was initially offered to Dulquer Salmaan. Now that leaves us with the question of who will be cast for the role of Jayam Ravi? It is to be noted that unofficially, it has been confirmed that both Jayam Ravi and Dulquer Salmaan opted out of Thug Life due to shooting schedule conflicts.

Ashok Selvan in Thug Life?

Actor Ashok Selvan, who was last seen in Pon Ondru Kanden, is expected to take up the role of Jayam Ravi’s character. However, an official announcement on the same is yet to be made by the makers. With the makers only now announcing officially Silambarasan’s casting, it is expected that the team is waiting for some time to make the announcement regarding Ashok Selvan. If his casting is indeed true, it will be interesting to see how his role pans out in Thug Life, given it is his first collaboration with Mani Ratnam and Kamal Haasan.

Thug Life is directed by ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam and backed by Madras Talkies and Raaj Kamal Films International. With music scored by AR Rahman, Thug Life also stars Trisha, Silambarasan, Joju George, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Gautham Karthik, Nasser, Abhirami, Vayapuri and others.
