Valimai villain showers love on Ajith

Tollywood actor Karthikeya Gummakonda, who is said to be playing the villain in Ajith’s upcoming fiilm Valimai directed by H Vinod, took to social media to reveal how he has inspired him to be a better actor.

“Coming from a non-filmy background facing many difficulties, many failures, coming out stronger each and every time and becoming THALA of Tamil cinema ..every page in your journey can be taken as an inspiration sir..congratulations on completing 28years #28YrsOfSELFMADETHALAAjith”, he posted.

Recently, Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi collaborated with actors Karthikeya Gummakonda and Eesha Rebba to spread Covid-19 awareness message to their fans.

In a video with Karthikeya, Chiranjeevi could be seen sharing a mask with a moustache print on it. This happens after Karthikeya is seen playing with his moustache in the video (without a mask). Chiranjeevi was heard saying ‘Please wear a mask’ by the end of the video.

Ajith will resume the shoot of his upcoming film, Valimai, post lockdown. Directed by H Vinoth, the film is touted to be an action thriller.

Boney Kapoor, the producer of the film, recently took to Twitter to reveal that the team will not do any promotional activities related to their films in view of the novel coronavirus outbreak. The film went on floors in December 2019 and major portions were shot at Ramoji Rao Film City.

Valimai was shot in Hyderabad where incidentally the bike chase scenes were canned and a specially designed animal was reserved for Ajith playing the role of a supercop. The actor fell so much in love with the bike that when the shooting completed and the team was returning home, he asked to cancel his flight ticket and decided to take a solo ride instead.
