As per current reports, Rajesh Raja has claimed that at least 10 scenes from the Ajith Kumar starrer Valimai has been ripped off from his short film Thanga Sangili. In the same reports, it has also been mentioned that Raja attempted to resolve the matter by trying to approach the director of the film H Vinoth many times but hasn’t been able to do so. Considering this , the filmmaker decided to go through the legal route. A fact which cannot be overlooked is that the plagiarism charges come a year after the film hits the big screen. However, further details regarding the matter are currently kept under wraps.

Talking about Valimai, the action thriller featured Ajith Kumar in the lead role along with Huma Qureshi, Gurbani Judge aka VJ Bani, RX100 actor Karthikeya in pivotal roles. The film revolved around a cop’s fight against the drug lord in an attempt to finish off his business and also save his brother who is a victim of the racket.
