Karthikeya played the antagonist role in 'Gang leader'. Although this film did not do very well it seems to have fetched a good rolefor Karthikeya in an Ajith starrer if we are to by the tollywood buzz.

'Valimai' is a movie with Ajith in the lead and directed by Vinoth. It appears Karthikeyamay appear as villain in this movie. Antagonist role is different in this movie and it appears the film crew thought karthikeya would be a good choice for the same.

If this bceomes true, Karthikeya's career may take a different turn and we have to wait and see how much it helps him. His recent movie 90 ml did not do very well at the box office and he is badly in need of a good film after Rx100.

Valimai team may make an offcial announemnt soon about this development. Boney kapoor is producing this movie under his production house Bay view projects. Yuvan shankar Raja is composing the musicfor the film.

Movie is planned to release in the later half of 2020.
