Earlier, there was a news circulating around that Thala's 59 is not a remake of Pink but indeed a fresh story. This was because of some fake account of director H Vinoth tweeted the news. As per sources, director H Vinoth is not active in his social account and stated that the news is absolutely false. Ajith's 59 is a remake of Pink but readjusted according to the Tamil audience which will likely go on the sets by February 2019. And Boney Kapoor is bankrolling this venture. Currently, Ajith's Viswasam is gearing up its release on Pongal.
