He is Kollywood’s answer to the proverbial phoenix. A hero in his own right, he is the darling for many fans, some of whom have literally laid their lives for thala’s film in the past.
Ajith Kumar has always been recognized as a whiff of fresh air in an industry that otherwise suffocates with little room for heroes without a backing in filmdom. Ajith’s rise from a near nobody to a recognized star bagging Rs 10 crore for a film has been quite dramatic.
The reticent actor might have insisted on all attention being shifted towards the Eelam issue instead of celebrating his birthday. But his die-hard fans, as will any movie buff, remember this day as the day when perseverance won over established rules that have strangled Kollywood.
The actor is currently on a holiday abroad; after which he will be plunging back into the shooting of his next film Asal; in which he joins hands again with Director Saran. The movie is produced by Sivaji Productions. Asal being the Ultimate Star’s 49th movie, his fans will definitely be looking forward to it becoming a superhit movie; further raising the bar for their thala’s fiftieth movie. And as pointed out by Superstar Rajinikanth at the movie launch, its time yet again for Ajith to prove himself.
