The shooting of Thala Ajith Kumar’s Valimai started very recently in Ramoji Roa Film city located in Hyderabad. Yuvan Shankar Raja has been roped in to score music for the project directed by H Vinoth. This 60th film of Ajith will be funded by Boney Kapoor’s Bayview Production house. Ajith Kumar has got two hit films at the box office this year in the form of Viswasam, the emotional rural drama, and Nerkonda Paarvai, the intense courtroom drama. Who is going to lock heads with Ajith in Valimai is the million dollar question that all Thala fans are asking right now?  
There are rumour doing rounds that Kartikeya Gummakonda who played the lead in blockbuster Telugu film RX 100 will be playing Ajith’s villain in Valimai. When we checked with our sources close to the team, they said that he is not part of the film and the makers are hunting to find an actor who would suit the role. So, it looks like the role for Ajith’s baddie in Valimai is still open for grabs. Ajith will be playing a cop in this stylish action thriller which is planned to be shot majorly in foreign locales.
