While Ajith fans impatiently await any news about Valimai, we have something unique for you about the superstar's next film, tentatively titled AK61. We previously reported that Valimai is set to be the first Tamil biggie to enter theatres this summer, with a release date set for late March. Now, we've heard that Thala Ajith is set to have not one, but two releases this year, with AK61 set to hit theatres a few months following Valimai. Here's everything we know about the AK61 release date so far.
A reliable source in the Tamil film business has stated that AK61 will be completed in time for Diwali this year, including all post-production work. That's right, you read that correctly. Ajith's AK61 may be released in theatres around the Diwali weekend, giving his admirers even more reason to rejoice throughout the festival.
Furthermore, if it occurs, it will be the first time in a long time that the actor has two films released in the same calendar year. For the uninitiated, AK61 reunites the same team of Valimai and Nerkonda Paarvai, superstar Ajith, Director H. Vinoth, and producer Boney Kapoor for the third time.
The Ajith starrer is expected to be the first Tamil cinema biggie to hit theatres during the packed summer slate, when several movies from various industries will be queuing up for release, particularly after the recent delay caused by another round of theatrical restrictions and shutdowns, according to the same source. It's expected to hit theatres by the end of March, which means no other major Tamil film will be released before it.
