Tamil media houses have reported that Bollywood actress Yami Gautam has been approached to pair opposite Thala Ajith in 'Valimai'. Yami Gautam had earlier acted in Tamil films like Gouravam and Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum but both tanked at the box office so the industry had stamped her as an unlucky heroine.
Though the film's producer Boney Kapoor has confirmed that the shoot of the film will begin on December 13 and Ajith plays a cop, he hasn't revealed the list of actors associated with the project.
Vinoth of 'Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru' fame is directing 'Valimai' for which Nirav Shah will be cranking the camera and Yuvan Shankar Raja will be composing the music.
Sources say that team 'Valimai' targets Diwali 2020 release.
