Looks like superstar Ajith Kumar’s fans will have to wait till next year for his forthcoming family-action drama, Valimai, as the film will hit the marquee on Pongal 2022, rather than Diwali this year.
Film producer Boney Kapoor took to his social media profile and confirmed the release date of the much awaited action drama, he tweeted, “Happy to announce that #Valimai will hit the screens on Pongal 2022. #ValimaiFromPongal #ValimaiPongal #Valimai #Ajithkumar #HVinoth @BayViewProjOffl @ZeeStudios_ @punitgoenka @SureshChandraa #NiravShah @thisisysr @humasqureshi @ActorKartikeya @RajAyyappamv @bani_j @iYogiBabu @BoneyKapoor #Kathir @dhilipaction @editorvijay @VigneshShivN @Kavithamarai @TherukuralArivu @VijaytvPugazhO @ZEE5Premium @ZeeTamil @zeethirai @SonyMusicSouth @ProRekha @DoneChannel1 #RomeoPictures @mynameisraahul @gopuram_cinemas”
The film was widely expected to release for Deepavali this year and clash with Rajinikanth’s Annaatthe, but the makers seem to have postponed the release to work on the post-production of the film. A teaser is expected to be released shortly.
The film is directed by H Vinoth, also starring Huma Qureshi, Kartikeya Gummakonda, Pearle Maaney and Yogi Babu.
The actor was last seen in Nerkonda Paarvai, a remake of the Bollywood film Pink which opened to positive reviews and became commercially successful at the box office.
