Aravind Swamy was approached to play an important character in the upcoming film. However, the actor turned down the offer without even hearing the story.

According to reports, seasoned actor Aravind Swamy has refused to act in an upcoming Tamil film, which features Tamil superstar Thala Ajith Kumar in the lead role. Yes, you heard it absolutely right! Reportedly, the makers of Valimai had approached Aravind Swamy to play an important character in the upcoming movie. However, the Bogan (2017) actor turned down the offer without even hearing the story.

Valimai reunites Ajith Kumar with filmmaker H Vinoth right after the huge success of their latest outing Nerkonda Paarvai (2019), which was an official remake of the path-breaking Hindi film Pink (2016), originally starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Kriti Kulhari in central characters.

The makers wanted Aravind Swamy for an important character in Valimai. But the actor said no to the project as he is currently keeping busy with his forthcoming venture with director AL Vijay titled Thalaivi. Thalaivi is a biopic based on the life of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha. Three-time National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut is playing the lead role in the biopic, while Aravind Swamy is attached to the project for the role of MGR.

Talking about the character of Ajith in Valimai, the actor essays the role of a cop in the upcoming movie. Buzz has it that he is playing a double role in Valimai. As far as his love interest in the film is concerned, Nayanthara has reportedly come onboard to play the female lead opposite the superstar. However, the makers are yet to announce her name officially. The team is expected to announce the entire star cast of the film soon. Valimai is produced by Boney Kapoor, who also bankrolled Nerkonda Paarvai, and the regular shooting of the film is expected to commence next month. More details on the project are expected to arrive soon.
