Their fans often compare them and treat them as competitors, but Ajith and Vijay have proved often that they are very close friends
At film functions, they both are often seen sharing jokes and engaged in serious discussions, and this has become a common sight these days. They have great mutual respect
Recently, in one such display of care for Vijay’s fans, Ajith changed the name of Aegan’s villain. In Aegan, actor Suman plays the villain and his onscreen name is Joseph Chinnappa. When Ajith came to know about this, he requested director Raju Sundaram to change the character’s name. He explained that his friend and actor Vijay’s full name is Joseph Vijay and that he does not want to hurt or irate his fans by naming his film’s villain after him. In a similar fashion, Vijay too painstakingly looks for any factor, which could irate Ajith fans, and eliminates it from his films!
Both these stars are not rivals and they are good friends in real life. Then why do we fans try to compare them, create an imaginary rivalry between them.
And then we say that Kollywood has lesser “double-hero” films than Bollywood.
it is us “the highly sensitive fans ” who are the reason that Kollywood heroes are not acting together!
