Thala Ajith's Valimai has been the talk of the town for several months now It has been over two years since the makers of Valimai shared any update aout the film. In 2018, Boney Kapoor announced that he will join hands with Ajith and H Vinoth for their second project titled Valimai. Ajith's fans have been losing patience and have been asking Tamil Nadu chief minister Edapadi K Palanisamy and England cricketer Moeen Ali for an update about Valimai. Ravichandran Ashwin was not left out too. Fans asked him about Valimai update when he was fielding.
In a YouTube live session, Ashwin said, "There was a striking funny moment which showed how passionate and crazy people in Tamil Nadu are about our movies. 'When I was fielding near the boundary one fan started shouting 'Valimai Update'. I didn't understand anything at the moment. Later, when I googled it up, I was unable to control my laughter. How could I connect with 'Valimai Update' when asked about it during a Test match? Then the next day, Moeen Ali came up to me and asked 'What is Valimai?'. Then I realized, fans have asked Moeen Ali as well for the update when he was fielding along the rope. It was extremely funny. Asking an England player for the Valimai update was outstanding. I can't take it off my head."
