Coming out with successful films on a consistent basis is a mighty tough task in Tamil cinema and any film industry considering there is always a heavy competition. In that light, director H. Vinoth, who made head turns with his 2014 heist thriller film Sathuranga Vettai, made heads turn while also winning the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Storywriter for his work. He then collaborated with Karthi in 2017 for Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, which as well fetched him critical acclaim, with the film turning out to be a box office blockbuster. Fast forward two years later, H. Vinoth hit the bullseye yet again and this time with 'Thala' Ajith in Nerkonda Paarvai, which turned out to be the biggest box office success for the filmmaker. 

An official remake of the smash hit Hindi film Pink, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles, Nerkonda Paarvai had Ajith in the role portrayed by the legendary Bollywood actor, while Shraddha Srinath, Abhirami Venkatachalam and Andrea Tariang were cast in major supporting roles and, Vidya Balan made a cameo appearance. Produced by Boney Kapoor under his Bayview Projects LLP banner and featuring hit music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, Nerkonda Paarvai fetched both H. Vinoth and Ajith for tackling a sensitive story, which spawned a discussion on topics like women empowerment and sexual harassment. 

Post the success of NKP, Boney Kapoor once again announced a team-up with Ajith, H. Vinoth and Yuvan Shankar Raja for an action thriller titled Valimai, which as per reports wrapped an important schedule at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad earlier this week. The upcoming film has created massive expectations among Ajith fans as it has been revealed that there will be high-octane action sequences. With an important leg of filming now wrapped, a new picture of director H. Vinoth has now surfaced on social media. The Valimai director is seen wearing a face mask as a safety precaution against coronavirus and being greeted at the Tuticorin Airport before he reportedly headed off to Thiruchendur. Below is the picture:

'Thala' Ajith fans have been waiting for a glimpse of the superstar for a while now and based on the quiet work the Valimai team has been carrying out, we can expect an update from the makers sometime soon. Apart from Ajith, Valimai will also include Karthikeya who is speculated to be playing the antagonist, with Kaala fame Huma Qureshi as the female lead, followed by Yogi Babu, Raj Ayyappa, Saranya Ravichandran among others forming the supporting cast.
