Valimai is Thala Ajith’s next film which is currently put on hold due to the global pandemic. The fans have got huge expectations on this action adventure drama which will feature Ajith as a cop. It is also said that the film will have a lot of high octane action and bike chase sequences and it is going to be a visual treat for the fans. If the current reports are to be believed, the makers are planning to resume the shooting of Valimai from the middle of October with all precautions, but an official word is awaited. Produced by Boney Kapoor’s Bayview Projects LLP, Valimai is directed by the young and promising H Vinoth and has music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Kaala fame Huma Qureshi plays the female lead, while Yogi Babu and Raj Ayyappa play supporting roles.

The team had kept the name of the villain under wraps and didn’t make any official announcements regarding that. However, there were wide speculations that RX 100 (Telugu) fame Kartikeya will play the antagonist in the film. Following a long wait, the news has been officially confirmed by Kartikeya himself. Yes! Taking to his Twitter page, Kartikeya assured the fans that a rocking update from the team of Valimai will be out in the near future.
