Valimai, the next film from south superstar Ajith Kumar, was finally released on Thursday after considerable anticipation and many delays owing to COVID-19. And, as expected, the action thriller lived up to the anticipation. The film, directed by H Vinoth, opened in theatres on February 24 and apparently garnered an impressive first-day box office collection. Valimai Day 2 box office collection numbers are given below.
