Thala Ajith aka Ajith Kumar, one of the most celebrated actors of the Tamil film industry, is all set to don khaki once again on the silver screen. As reported earlier, Thala Ajith is appearing as a cop once again in the upcoming action-thriller Valimai. Recently, it was reported that director H Vinoth had dropped a big hint about Valimai.
A tweet that is supposed to be made by director Vinoth had circulated on social media, in which he has compared Valimai with Mankatha, Ajith’s 2011-released blockbuster movie. In the post, it is written ‘Watching my All time Favorite #Mankatha now on K TV !!#ThalaFans Get Ready For Next Mankatha… It’s Is Our #Valimai 😎🔥‘.

However, the latest reports suggest that this tweet is not made by the Valimai director and the account from which it was posted, is not verified. According to the sources close to the project, the Valimai–Mankatha comparison tweet was made through a fake Twitter ID of director H Vinoth.
Mankatha, that marked Thala Ajith’s first collaboration with director Venkat Prabhu, had emerged as one of the most loved films of the actor’s career. Ajith appeared as Vinayak Mahadevan, a corrupted police officer in the movie that featured Arjun Sarja, Premgi Amaran, Vaibhav Reddy, Trisha Krishnan, and so on in pivotal roles.
Valimai, on the other hand, marks Ajith’s second collaboration with director H Vinoth and senior Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor, after the success of Nerkonda Paarvai, the 2019-released legal drama. The movie will feature Bollywood actresses Yami Gautham and Huma Qureshi as the female leads.
Ileana D’Cruz, the popular actress is said to be playing a pivotal role in Valimai. Yuvan Shankar Raja, the popular musician has been roped in to compose the songs and background score for the project. The filming of the project is currently stopped due to the all India lockdown.
