Ajith Kumar's Valimai which was scheduled to release in theatres for this year's Pongal festival was unfortunately postponed due to the third wave of Covid 19. The team is currently working out on the options for the new release plans and if reports are to be believed, the film is likely to hit the screens by the last week of February or early March. Meanwhile, a tweet about Valimai from a fake profile in the name of stunt choreographer Dhilip Subbarayan has caused unnecessary confusion on social media. The tweet from the fake profile stated that the first half of Valimai will be investigation-based while the second half will be loaded with action and sentiment.

The tweet went viral among the fans in a matter of a few minutes. On hearing this, stunt choreographer Dhilip Subbarayan took to his official Twitter page to clarify that the tweet came from a fake profile and requested the fans to report about it. Dhilip Subbarayan tweeted, "This ID is Fake, please report and Block! Thank you". The Twitter ID of Dhilip Subbarayan's original account is @dhilipaction while the fake profile has the user name with an underscore - dhilip_action. This timely clarification from Dhilip Subbarayan has helped the fans in being falsely guided.

Valimai is directed by the promising and talented H Vinoth who will be looking forward to delivering a blockbuster hit. Valimai will be an action packed entertainer backed by strong content and it will have Ajith Kumar playing the role of a cop named Arjun. Produced by Boney Kapoor under the banner of Bayview Projects LLP, the film has music composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and cinematography handled by Nirav Shah. Huma Qureshi of Kaala fame plays the female lead in Valimai which has Sumithra, Yogi Babu, Raj Ayyappa, GM Sundar, and Pugazh in pivotal roles. Telugu actor Kartikeya plays the main antagonist locking horns against Ajith.
