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.
Ajit wrote a open letter to his fans that I sincerely feel that whole process will be highly inhuman if we celebrate my birthday on the background of our fellow Tamils languishing and suffering amidst death and pain in Sri Lanka”.
The star also added that since general elections are being conducted all over the country, the birthday celebrations if they take place should not pose any discomfort to the authorities concerned.
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 super hit movie; further raising the bar for their thala’s 50th movie.
Happy birthday to Ultimate Star Ajith Kumar and wish him for many more successful films in the years to come.
