“Valimai” action thriller movie

Valimai (transl. Update) is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language action thriller film written and directed by H. Vinoth and the film is produced by Boney Kapoor. The film features Ajith Kumar in the lead role.

Soon after the release of director H. Vinoth’s second film Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru (2017), he approached actor Ajith Kumar for a big budget film featuring a protagonist with negative shades to his character. However, the project was rejected by Ajith and asked the director to instead work on remaking the Hindi film Pink (2016) as Nerkonda Paarvai (2019) in Tamil.

During the making of Nerkonda Paarvai, producer Boney Kapoor announced that he would collaborate again with actor Ajith Kumar and director H. Principal photography began on 13 December 2019 at Hyderabad. Filming was suspended in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but resumed that September.

The soundtrack and background score will be composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Valimai was scheduled to be released by the third week of November 2020 coinciding with Diwali. However, the release has been delayed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
