Here’s the latest on Ajith’s Valimai, a film bankrolled by Boney Kapoor, where the actor plays a cop. Sources say svelte actress Ileana, who was last seen in Tamil in the 2011 Vijay starrer Nanban, has been roped in to play Thala’s pair in the film. The movie, directed by Vinoth, who earlier teamed up with Ajith for NerkondaPaarvai, commenced shooting in Hyderabad at Ramoji Rao Film City on Friday. Valimai has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and cinematography by the accomplished Nirav Shah.
Of late, Kaabil actress Yami Gautam’s name has also been making the rounds as part of the cast. Yami is not new to Tamil. She has done Gauravam and Tamil Selvanum Taniyar Anjalum in K’town.
