Actor Ajith’s last film Nerkonda Paarvai, a remake of the Bollywood hit Pink, saw him departing from his trademark action roles to essay the character of an eccentric lawyer. For his next venture Valimai, Ajith’s 60th film, the star will go back to his comfort zone with a traditional action drama. Valimai is directed by H Vinodh who made his name with Sathuranga Vettai in 2014 and followed it up with the commercial blockbuster Theeran Adhigaram Ondru starring Karthi. The filmmaker has also worked with Ajith in Nerkonda Paarvai. Valimai is bankrolled by Boney Kapoor films, their 2nd collaboration with Ajith after Nerkonda Paarvai. Here are some interesting details you need to know about #Thala60.

Valimai has all the makings of a Thala mass entertainer
With the Covid-19 pandemic playing havoc, the making of Valimai had to be temporarily stalled but fans will be thrilled to know that shooting has resumed and some exciting updates are in store in the following months. From the news that is coming in, Ajith will be seen in a double role with one character being that of a police officer. Speculation is that the other character may have negative shades. Valimai will also see Telugu actor Karthikeya Gummakonda of RX100 fame playing the antagonist in the film. Gummakonda took to twitter on Ajith’s birthday to wish the star and also announced that an exciting update about the film will be revealed. In addition, the beautiful and talented Huma Qureshi has been roped in as the female lead for the film. Qureshi was last seen and appreciated for her power-packed role in Rajnikanth’s Kaala which catapulted her to stardom in the south. Valimai also has a strong technical team that includes Yuvan Shankar Raja composing the music and Nirav Shah behind the camera.
There is still so much information about Valimai that will be revealed to audiences in the coming weeks. Keep the film in your radar by checking the latest updates and as always, continue to enjoy your favourite films in your preferred streaming platforms.
