Telugu actor Karthikeya is making his Tamil debut as an antagonist in Thala Ajith’s Valimai. The Director of the film, H Vinoth has revealed something interesting about Karthikeya’s casting. The director was hesitant with Kartikeya after doing a test shoot as he had a Telugu star look.
But it was Ajith Kumar who finalized him. “Same happened to me in my Initial Days. It took me one year and more to cope up. Misinformation will spread affecting actor’s Career,” Ajith told the director. Tovino Thomas was initially preferred for the antagonist role, due to date issues Kartikeya came in.
Karthikeya previously played a baddie in Nani’s Gang Leader but that movie did not work. He is looking forward to this film. Valimai is gearing up for a grand release on January 14th, 2022 as Sankranthi Special. Huma Qureshi is the female lead in this film which has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.Follow @THEPANIPURI
