Actor Ajith's next film after Valimai has been reported to be a collaboration with Sudha Kongara, director of films like Madhavan starrer Irudhi Suttru and Suriya's Soorarai Pottru. Composer G.V. Prakash who has worked with the director in her yet to be released film Soorarai Pottru, recently made a statement about this collaboration and said,
"It is a superb script. If it (Ajith-Sudha Kongara teamup) happens, it will be great. This script has potential of topping the level she has reached with Soorari Pottru in Indian cinema. It will be a huge action film. Sudha had told me about the script. If it happens, it will be amazing."
It is worth mentioning here that while Sudha Kongara directed Soorarai Pottru awaits OTT release on October 30, 2020 Ajith on the other hand is yet to resume Valimai. It is also worth mentioning here that Sudha Kongara has not yet been finalized as the director of Ajith's next after Valimai, which is tentatively referred to as Thala 61/ Ajith 61 by his fans.
