Valimai update: Ajith Kumar issues written statement; requests fans to maintain dignity and discipline
The statement comes hours after producer Boney Kapoor took to Twitter to announce that the first look of Valimai is on its way
Actor Ajith Kumar has issued a written statement requesting fans to maintain dignity and discipline in public and on online forums. Announcing that his upcoming film Valimai's updates will be out in due time, Ajith requested his fans to be patient regarding the news.
Ajith was last seen in the 2019 film, Nerkonda Paarvai, and has reunited with the same director (H Vinoth) and producer (Boney Kapoor) for Valimai too. The title of the project, then referred to as Thala 60, was announced in 2019. However, since then, there have been no updates from the team, and this irked the star's fans. The hashtag '#ValimaiUpdate' has often been found in the top trending lists on social media. And aside from the memes and trends, some took this up a notch and began requesting updates of the film from even political leaders during their rallies.
Recently, a video circulated on the internet in which a cricket fan was seen asking England cricketer Moeen Ali for an update of the film during the ongoing second Test match between India and England.
Today, Ajith Kumar's PRO Suresh Chandra posted an official written statement from the actor, who began by expressing his disappointment with his fans' recent behaviour. "The updates regarding the film will be given out in due time. Only after proper discussion with the producers, will I decide the date and time when those updates will be presented. I request you all to be patient until then," continued the statement in Tamil.
"Cinema might be entertainment for you all, but for me, it's my profession. The decisions I take about the same will have their own impact on my career and on society. Only our actions reflect the respect we have in society. I request you all to maintain dignity and discipline in public and on online forums. I am sure that the ones who have true affection for me will keep this in mind," added Ajith.
Incidentally, the statement comes hours after producer Boney Kapoor took to Twitter to announce that the first look of Valimai is on its way.
