Ever since the title of Ajith’s upcoming film was announced to be Valimai, speculations about the film’s cast has been rife. The latest according to the rumour mill is that Malayalam actress Nazriya Nazim might be a part of the film.
Directed by H Vinoth, who recently directed Ajith in Nerkonda Paarvai, the Tamil remake of Hindi film Pink, the upcoming Tamil film’s pooja commenced on October 18. The film will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and cinematography by Nirav Shah. The Tamil film will be produced by Boney Kapoor, who also bankrolled Nerkonda Paarvai.
Ajith is all set to play a police officer in the Tamil film. A source close to the film recently spoke about the film to Times of India in an interview. “The makers have chosen Valimai as the title because it aptly conveys the salient aspects of Ajith’s role, and also the mood of the script. The title was actually registered a couple of years ago for one of his earlier films, but the makers have decided to use it for this project. Also, titles starting with V have always been propitious for the actor,” the source said.
Nazriya Nazim was last seen in Malayalam film Koode (2018). Her Tamil titles include Raja Rani, Neram, Naiyaandi, Vaayai Moodi Pesavum and Thirumanam Enum Nikkah.
