In early 2019, actor Ajith, producer Boney Kapoor, and director H Vinoth announced that they will team up for their second film after Nerkonda Paarvai. They joined hands for a cop drama titled Valimai. However, since 2019, there has not been any update regarding the film. Ajith's ardent fans have been asking for a Valimai update to Tamil Nadu ex-Chief Minister, England cricketer Moeen Ali and many more celebrities. The makers were about to release the first-look poster of Valimai on May 1 on the occasion of Ajith's 50th birthday. However, they had to postpone it because of the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Recently, we had reported that the makers are planning to release the first-look poster and motion poster as a double treat to the fans. Now, the latest reports suggest that the first-look poster will be out on July 15. However, an official announcement is expected to be made soon. Reportedly, Ajith has given his nod to go ahead with the first-look poster release. Also, the Valimai team will be resuming the film's shooting in India soon. They had initially planned to shoot a fight sequence in Spain. Due to travel restrictions because of Covid-19, the team will shoot in India. The film's release date is also expected to be announced along with the first-look poster.
