Ajith played the role as Don in his previous flick Billa under Vishnuvardhan direction and Anu Vardhan designed all the suits for Ajith in this flick.
She justifies her actions and says, "International don wouldn't dress up in native costumes like dhotis and kurta." Anu Vardhan is the costume designer for all the movies directed by Vishnuvardhan.
Vishnuvardhan is shaping Valai keeping the fans expectations in mind, as their former flick Billa turned out be a massive hit. Ajith is known for his action stunts and Lee Whittaker composed the stunts in Dubai. Arya, Nayantara and Tapsee are playing the main leads and Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the tunes for this film.
