Actor Ajith Kumar’s new film Valimai, which marks his second collaboration with producer Boney Kapoor, was recently launched and its regular shooting will commence from December.

The genre of the film is still unknown, however, reports have emerged that Ajith will be seen playing a cop after a long time. An official announcement is yet awaited but reliable sources have confirmed that Ajith will don the khaki for an action-packed story.


The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be officially announced, but it has already been confirmed that Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose music while Nirav Shah will crank the camera.

It is rumored that this film will feature SJ Suryah as the antagonist. In a recent media interaction, Suryah said he will concentrate on acting going forward after the grand reception for his latest film Monster.

He also said that he will be very choosy about playing a negative role as he has earned a new set of audiences with Monster. 

Asked if he will stop playing a negative role, he said: “I don’t want to play a regular villain with no purpose. If I look at my roles in Mersal and Spyder, I played the antagonist with an ideology. That’s the kind of role I’d like to play.” Valimai will be directed by H Vinoth, who recently helmed Nerkonda Paarvai, the Tamil remake of Pink. Even before work on Nerkonda Paarvai commenced, Vinoth was signed for another project by Boney Kapoor.
