A still from Valimai
Huma Qureshi is all set for her second outing in Tamil with H Vinoth's Valimai, starring Ajith in the lead. Her debut in Tamil was Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala (streaming on Amazon Prime Video) which released in 2018. Fans of Ajith are eagerly waiting for Valimai, though the makers are yet to make an official announcement on the release date of the action thriller.
However, it is expected that the film will hit the screens on either January 12 or 13. Huma's latest post on Instagram has hinted about the official date of the film's release. She posted an unseen still on her social media page which features herself and Ajith. The picture has January 13 mentioned on it.
Needless to say, the still went viral in no time and fans of Ajith are now sure of when the much-awaited movie is going to hit the screens. They are still awaiting a final confirmation from Boney Kapoor, who is bankrolling the project under Bay View Projects.
The makers had initially planned to release the movie on Deepavali, but the announcement of films like Annaatthe, Enemy and Maanaadu made them finalize the release for Pongal festival in 2022. This is Ajith's release after a two-and-a-half year hiatus.
Nerkonda Paarvai (streaming on Zee5), which had Vinoth and Boney as its director and producer respectively, was the star's last outing. A remake of Bollywood flick, Pink (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar), the film had opened top positive response from critics and the audience alike.
Since it was a remake, fans of Ajith were hoping that their matinee idol comes up with a new movie soon so as to witness him performing daredevil stunts and mass sequences. Valimai is Ajith's 60th film as an actor.
