Ajith in Valimai

Movie lovers in Tamil Nadu are eagerly waiting for an update on the theatrical release of Ajith-starrer Valimai as the state government has announced a curfew in the night. The government has also announced that only 50 per cent occupancy will be permitted in theatres.  

Despite these many restrictions and speculations doing the rounds on the film having a direct release on Zee5, the makers are yet to respond on the uncertainty pertaining to its theatrical release. January 13 was the release date announced by the team earlier. Vinoth is directing the movie which has been bankrolled by Boney Kapoor.

We had reported earlier that the trio of Ajith, Vinoth and Boney Kapoor will be teaming up again for an untitled project which might release this year itself. It is now heard that an announcement on the same will happen on Pongal. There are unconfirmed reports doing the rounds that the film might go on floors this month end.

Tentatively titled AK61, it is said to be a movie which deals with a social cause, unlike Valimai, an action thriller based on a real character. The cast and crew of AK61 is expected to be announced on Pongal and an official word on the same is awaited now. 

The last time an Ajith film released between a short period was when Arrambam (streaming on YouTube) and Veeram (streaming on MX Player and Jio Cinema) had hit the screens in two months' difference. AK61 will be the third collaboration of Ajith, Vinoth and Boney.

They had first joined hands for Nerkonda Paarvai (streaming on Zee5), which was the remake of Bollywood flick Pink (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar). For now, it is expected that the team will take a decision on Valimai's release on January 10, depending on further instructions from the government.
