Ileana D'Cruz to romance Thala Ajith in Valimai?

Actor Ajith has finally kickstarted shooting for his upcoming film, Valimai. The film marks the second collaboration of the Nerkonda Paarvai team - director H Vinoth and producer Boney Kapoor. As per the producer's words, Valimai's shooting went on floors on December 13 in Chennai.

However, the makers haven't released the details regarding the cast and crew of the film. Since Boney Kapoor met Nayanthara and had dinner with her in New York, many thought that he has roped in Nayanthara to play the female lead in the film. However, it looks like the makers have a different plan altogether.
If the rumors are anything to go by, actress Ileana D'Cruz might star opposite Ajith in Valimai. Sources close to the team revealed that they have approached the actress for the film. However, an official confirmation regarding her inclusion is yet to be made.
In an earlier interview, Boney Kapoor said, "I got to know him closely during the shoot of our Tamil film Nerkonda Paarvai. I was pleasantly surprised to know about his passion for racing and other sports. It was only natural that our next project together is a thriller that uses his passion for speed. I would love to have him in a Hindi film with an action backdrop."
