The makers have taken the decision because of the second wave of the coronavirus in the country and its impact on people. On Friday night, Boney Kapoor issued a statement that read: "We had announced that we would be releasing the First Look of our film 'Valimai' on May 1, 2021 to coincide with Shri Ajith Kumar's 50th birthday.
