Valimai Producer Boney Kapoor announces the new release date of his film!
By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 11:24 AM
Producer Boney Kapoor is currently bankrolling three mega biggies in three languages - Thala Ajith’s Valimai in Tamil, Pawan Kalyan’s Vakeel Saab in Telugu, and Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan in Hindi. All the three films are in different stages of production and recently, Boney Kapoor had revealed in an interview that all the three films would release only in theatres. Now, the ace producer has officially announced the new release date of Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan, which is the biopic of former Indian Football team coach and manager, Syed Abdul Rahim, who is considered as the architect of modern Indian Football.
It has been announced that this film will hit the screens next year on August 13, ahead of the Independence Day weekend. This news has come as a surprise for many of the fans in Bollywood as it is one of the first Hindi films to come up with a new release date during this lockdown phase. Maidaan was initially scheduled to release towards the end of this year, on December 11, but due to the uncertainty of the pandemic situation, the release has now been pushed by 9 months.
Maidaan is directed by Amit Ravindrenath Sharma who garnered attention with his last directorial film, Badhaai Ho, starring Ayushmann Khurrana. The film will feature Priyamani playing the female lead, as Ajay Devgn’s wife, while Gajraj Rao is said to play a crucial role. The film's story has been penned by Akash Chawla, Arunava Joy Sengupta, and Saiwyn Quadras. On the technical side the film will have cinematography by Tushar Kanti Ray and editing by Dev Rao Jadhav. Amit Trivedi has been signed to compose the songs, while the background score will be taken care of by Sidhant Mago and Mayank Mehra.
After seeing this announcement tweet, Ajith fans have expressed their interest to know about the release date of Valimai which has got huge expectations. It looks like the fans will have to wait for a few more months to know about the release plans of Valimai since nothing has been finalized as of now. Ajith has reportedly made it clear that the shooting of Valimai will resume only when everyone is declared safe from the pandemic.
Being a big-budget film shot on a large scale, it is not practically possible for the makers to shoot with a very minimal crew and hence we can expect the shooting of the film to resume when things get normal. Directed by H Vinoth, Valimai features Huma Qureshi as the female lead and has music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. For now, check out Boney Kapoor’s tweet about the new release date of Maidaan here:

An untold story that will make every Indian proud. 13th August mark the date. #Maidaan2021@Ajaydevgn @Priyamani6 @raogajraj @boneykapoor @iAmitRSharma @freshlimefilms @saiwynQ @actorrudranil @writish @saregamaglobal @zeestudios_ @zeestudiosint pic.twitter.com/yuA7S2BUZt— Boney Kapoor (@BoneyKapoor) July 4, 2020
Valimai producer Boney Kapoor says no promotions during coronavirus crisis
By Vivek Raj | Galatta | 10:31 AM
Actor Ajith Kumar's upcoming film, Valimai, which kicked off production earlier this year, is being directed by H. Vinoth under producer Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects LLP banner. Initially announced to be a Diwali release this year, those plans have since gone out the window as the world battles the coronavirus pandemic leading to governments across the globe calling for a shutdown on all activities, which includes film production companies putting their projects on hold.
In the midst of the global crisis, producer Boney Kapoor has now released a statement on his Twitter page saying there will be no promotions or PR activity on the films being produced under the Bayview Projects banner until the COVID-19 crisis has been dealt with as this is a critical time and the decision has been taken after mutual agreement with artists and technicians associated with the projects. The statement has come at a time when many Ajith fans were expecting and hoping for an update about Valimai considering the superstar will be celebrating his birthday on Friday (May 1). Check out Boney Kapoor's statement below:
Valimai is one of the biggest and hottest films in development at present and will see 'Thala' Ajith donning the khakhi once again after Gautham Menon's 2015 film, Yennai Arindhaal. Fans have been particularly ecstatic about the upcoming action film as it also marks the second consecutive occasion after last year's blockbuster, Nerkonda Paarvai, that Ajith, director H. Vinoth and composer Yuvan Shankar Raja are reuniting. Apart from Ajith set to be seen as a police officer, fans expect Valimai to be a massive theatrical experience as H. Vinoth's previous films, Sathuranga Vettai and Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, were lauded for their detailing and research.
