Actress Keerthy Suresh, who was last seen in Manmadhudu 2 (2019) in a cameo, is most likely to be paired with Ajith Kumar in his upcoming Tamil action film Vaimai, which was officially launched a few days ago.

The project, which will be directed by H Vinoth, will mark the second production venture of Boney Kapoor in Tamil after Nerkonda Paarvai (2019), the remake of Pink (2016).

It is rumoured that Keerthy Suresh has been signed to play the leading lady. However, an official announcement is yet awaited from the makers.

There are also reports that the film will feature actor-filmmaker SJ Suryah as the antagonist. In a recent media interaction, Suryah said he will concentrate on acting going forward after the grand reception for his last film Monster (2019). 

For Valimai, Ajith has shed his salt-and-pepper look. He was recently spotted in a new avatar, sporting black hair and mustache.

While Yuvan Shankar Raja has been signed to compose music, Nirav Shah has been roped in as cinematographer. The regular shoot will commence from this December.

Boney Kapoor has pinned high hopes on Vaimai, the success of Nerkonda Paarvai, which went on to gross over Rs100 crore in Tamil Nadu. He plans to dub and release it Telugu as well.

Nerkonda Paarvai, which marked the Tamil debut of Vidya Balan in a crucial role, also starred Shraddha Srinath, Andrea Tariang and Abhirami Venkatachalam in crucial roles. It had music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

The project was materialized to honor’s Ajith’s promise to Sridevi. It was late Sridevi’s wish that her husband produces a film with Ajith, who had shared screen space with the veteran in English Vinglish (2012) in a cameo.
