The movie produced by Boney Kapoor and directed by H.Vinoth got postponed for almost two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. After two years of delay, Ajith fans celebrated the release of the first look and motion posters massively and the hashtag #ValimaiUpdate went viral online.
Now in a recent interview, the movie's director revealed that Ajith suggested Prasanna and Arjun Dass to be considered for the villain role in Valimai. However, the director felt that Telugu actor Karthikeya fit the role better and ended up choosing him as the antagonist after discussing with Ajith.
Meanwhile, this is what actor Karthikeya posted regarding Ajith on his social media platform:
