Will Valimai Be An OTT Release?
Ajith Kumar, the Thala was last seen in Nerkonda Paarvai with Vidya Balan, Shraddha Srinath, Abhirami Venkatachalam, Andrea Tariang and Rangaraj Pandey, directed by “H Vinoth.” Following the success, he was shooting for his next film, “Valimai.” Vinoth directs it and Boney Kapoor is the producer. Huma Qureshi plays the female lead. Kartikeya Gummakonda, Achyuth Kumar and “Sumithra” are also in the cast. Yuvan Shankar Raja composes the music.
While some biggie films like Suriya Sivakumar starrer Soorarai Pottru got released on OTT platforms last year, films like “Master” featuring "Vijay" and Vijay Sethupathi waited for the lockdown relaxations and got released in theaters. When people started spreading the rumors that Valimai might get an OTT space, the makers strongly denied that the film would hit the silver screens. Ajith was much careful while shooting the film. He stated that it is the life of the people to be cared for first than filming and hence the team had also postponed the shoot in the first lockdown. So, Valimai will only make it in theaters. Similarly, KGF 2, RRR, Radhe Shyam, Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham, Prithviraj and a few more films will hit only the theaters, announced the makers.
