Valimai official motion poster is out, and it was sure worth all the wait. The motion poster gives us the first look at Ajith’s character in the film, which is produced by Boney Kapoor. It is edgy and fast-paced, and sets up Ajith as one-man army against a bunch of bad guys. The actor is introduced via a silhouette as the caption says, ‘Power is state of mind’.
The 1.23-second Valimai video shows the actor zooming around on a bike as he sports an intense look. The film will release in 2021 but the makers stopped short of giving a release date. However, it is clear that Valimai will release in theatres.
The makers also released four new posters of Valimai, each featuring Ajith in a different mood. While a close-up shot of the actor has him posing with bent-up, smashed bikes, others are action shots.

Valimai first look poster was also shared by Boney Kapoor’ son Arjun Kapoor and brother Anil Kapoor. “Valimai First look is amazing!,” Anil wrote while tagging Boney. Arjun shared the Valimai video on Instagram and said, “Super excited for #ThalaAjith sir’s next with Dad & Vinoth. The winning combo is back & how !!!”
The first look was earlier scheduled to release on Ajith’s 50th birthday on May 1. However, due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the release of the poster was pushed. Boney Kapoor had released a statement earlier this year in which he stated the reasons for the delay of Valimai’s first look.
“We had announced that we would be releasing the First Look of our film Valimai on May 1, 2021 to coincide with Shri Ajith Kumar’s 50th birthday. At the time of making the announcement, none of us had even anticipated that the 2nd wave of Corona Virus would spread across India like a tsunami. At this moment, lakhs of Indians are affected by financial hardship and emotional trauma due to loss of family members and friends,” the statement read.

Ajith had also asked his fans to be patient. “Cinema is just entertainment for you. But for me, it is my profession. My decisions depend on my work and social welfare. Our respect in this society is decided by our actions,” the actor had said in a statement.
Huma Qureshi and Kartikeya Gummakonda will also star in Valimai. The film is directed by H Vinoth, who has already delivered a memorable cop film titled Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, which released in 2017.
The actioner is Vinoth’s second consecutive movie with Ajith and Boney Kapoor after Nerkonda Paarvai, which was the official Tamil remake of Hindi movie Pink.
