Ajith was given the name Thala in AR Murugadoss’ film Dheena, and his character was affectionately referred to as Thala in the film.
The blockbuster trio of Valimai will be reuniting for another big-budget movie, which is tentatively being called as Thala 61.
H Vinoth wrote and directed the Tamil-language action thriller, which is produced by Zee Studios and Kapoor under Bayview Projects LLP.
Ajith plays the part of a police officer in Valimai, a cop drama. Apart from Ajith, Kartikeya Gummakonda, Huma Qureshi, Yogi Babu, Sumitra, and Pugazh play pivotal parts in the film.
For the time being, all specifics concerning the project are being kept under wraps, however we can confirm that it will be released in the second half of 2022.
After the 2019 courtroom drama Nerkonda Paarvai, Valimai is the actor-director duo’s second production under Boney Kapoor’s Bayview Projects LLP banner.
The original idea was to start filming in July and have it ready for a Summer 2021 release, however owing the Covid-scenario, there is now a two-month delay.
