However, the Tamil Nadu state government has implemented night curfews and lockdowns on Sundays to curb the tide of Omicron variant Covid-19 cases.
Additionally, in many Indian states, theatres have been mandated to have a maximum capacity of 50%. This puts the release of Valimai in jeopardy, and the producers have now confirmed that the film will not be released on January 13th.
According to their latest statement, the release date has been put back indefinitely. Check out the tweet here:
