The much-awaited first look and motion poster of Vinoth's Ajith-starrer Valimai were released a couple of months, leaving the star's fans delighted. There have been various rumours doing the rounds since then with regard to the film's release date. It was said that the movie will hit the screens on November 4, on the occasion of Deepavali, thus locking horns with Rajinikanth-starrer Annaatthe at the box office. But there has been no official update from the team till now. With the recent announcement that Silambarasan-starrer Maanaadu is releasing on Deepavali, it is more or less confirmed that Valimai will hit the screens only later this year.
