Valimai marks the second time association of the blockbuster trio - producer Boney Kapoor, director H Vinoth and actor Ajith. Their earlier project was Nerkonda Paarvai. Team Valimai started the shoot last month following safety protocols. However, the hero had not joined the team then and we hear that Ajith would join team Valimai for their next schedule in Hyderabad on October 25. Last month, Vinoth had started the shoot with Telugu actor Kartikeya who plays the antagonist in the film. Compared to the other film projects, Valimai started their shoot rather late after the lockdown was lifted as Ajith was insisting on delaying the shoot considering the risk his colleagues may be put through.
