Actor Ajith Kumar's fans are waiting eagerly for the superstar's next big film, Valimai, to hit screens later this year, with a release date yet to be announced officially. Being directed by H. Vinoth, the upcoming film is an out-and-out action entertainer that will be catering to family audiences as well and is a production venture of Boney Kapoor under the Bayview Projects LLP banner. Filming on Valimai came to a wrap on February 15, with a stunt sequence planned to be shot abroad, with post-production works said to have commenced. Having said that, it came as a massive surprise for Ajith's fans on Thursday when the actor made a public appearance in Chennai, with fans thronging around the superstar and clicking selfies. 

The most striking aspect about the pictures that are now trending is that Ajith is seen to have shaved his head completely and wearing a cap. The superstar looks relaxed now that a major chunk of shooting for Valimai has been completed. Another big noticeable feature about Ajith is that he has bulked up and looks extremely fit, which will come as a delight to fans considering he will be seen playing the role of a police officer and his latest transformation is set to be the talk of the town for some more time to come. 

Up until now, there has been no promotional material released from Valimai, with producer Boney Kapoor a few days back informing fans that the team is working on bringing the film's first look soon. As speculations are rife that the Valimai first look will most likely be out in March, shooting spot stills, including one with Ajith performing a daredevil stunt on a motorbike, took social media by storm sometime back. Likewise, composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, who is scoring the music on Valimai, recently dropped a massive update saying that festival drummers from Odisha had been called to work on the opening song in the film, which will feature lyrics by Vignesh Shivan. 

Valimai is the second consecutive film for Ajith with H. Vinoth, Boney Kapoor and Yuvan Shankar Raja after their Nerkonda Paarvai in 2019, which turned out to be a box office blockbuster, while also earning massive critical praise. The upcoming film will see Ajith paired opposite Kaala fame Huma Qureshi, with leading Telugu actor Kartikeya speculated to be playing the antagonist, followed by Yogi Babu, Saranya Ravichandran among others forming the supporting cast.
