In a shocking incident, a bomb threat call was made on Monday to the Chennai Police control room where an anonymous individual claimed a bomb threat at actor Ajith Kumar's house at Thiruvanmiyur in Chennai. Officials have launched an investigation to trace the caller and are using sniffer dogs to find out whether there are any explosives placed at the actor’s house. This is the second instance since last year when another individual had issued a bomb threat to Ajith’s residence, with the police tracing the caller in quick time and handing him over to the Neelangarai police for further inquiry. The miscreant last time was identified to be a mentally unstable person, who was earlier arrested for placing a similar call to actor Vijay's house. 

The news of the bomb threat to Ajith's house has come as shocking news for many of his ardent fans, with the police currently hard at work to identify the caller. Bomb threat calls have been placed to several leading celebrities in recent times, with the police swinging into action and later identifying them to be complete hoaxes. A hoax bomb threat was made to 'Superstar' Rajinikanth's house by an unidentified person in June last year, including veteran Tamil actor-politician 'Captain' Vijayakanth too being placed with a threat call at his residence. Actor Suriya's old office in Alwarpet had also received an anonymous bomb hoax scare last year, with actor Dhanush's house at Abhiramapuram as well getting a bomb threat call. 

On the work front, Ajith's last two releases, Viswasam and Nerkonda Paarvai, in 2019, turned out to be box office blockbusters, with fans waiting to witness him in action once again in the highly-anticipated action cop film, Valimai. Being directed by H. Vinoth under Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects LLP banner, production had wrapped up a few months back, with all sights now on the Valimai first look, which is yet to be released and had been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
