We had reported that Ajith would be seen performing high octane bike stunts in his upcoming film Valimai. The team is currently on a one-month break and will resume shooting from the second week of December. The update is that Ajith sustained injuries while wheeling off his bike for one of the stunt sequences. However, he continued shooting despite injuries.
“The climax sequence was being shot and Ajith was riding towards the camera and he was supposed to wheel the bike. At some point, he lost balance and fell backward. But the shoot did not come to a halt. He carried on with his work,” said a source close to the film unit to DT Next. This is not the first time that the actor has injured himself while performing a bike stunt. Earlier in February, on the same sets, he skidded off his bike and suffered minor injuries. Valimai will mark the second collaboration of Ajith, Boney Kapoor, and H Vinoth after Nerkonda Paarvai. Ajith will be donning the khaki in the movie after Yennai Arindhaal in 2015 and will be seen in two different looks.
