HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ajith Kumar, Ajith who is celebrating his 39th birthday on May 1, 2010 is a living example of hard work and self confidence and is the role model of many hearts . The man who was born on International Workers Day .
After a couple of movies like ‘Pavithra’ and ‘Amaravathi’, Ajith was recognized in his power-packed performance in ‘Aasai’. He stole the hearts of many with his captivating smile. He just didn’t seem like the guy next door, but like a handsome graceful star. Here started the real journey to ‘ultimate’ stardom.
With female following increasing by the day, his lover boy image took new turns with movies like ‘Kadhal Kottai’ and ‘Kadhal Mannan’. Here was a foundation built for the next generation of romantic heroes in Tamil cinema. With tough competition from heroes like handsome Prashanth and highly energetic Vijay who is supposedly labelled as Ajith’s archrival.
Though competition existed, Ajith continued attracting people of all classes of audience. Be it his costumes, his body language or his youth appeal, he managed to strike a chord with the youth with a thriller like ‘Vaali’, his first double-role movie, with one of the characters being a deaf and mute. ‘Vaali’ was a milestone in Ajith’s character that made him sow the seeds for an invincible future.
A series of movies that catapulted Ajith to the masses happened. ‘Dheena’ directed by A.R Murugadoss, was one such movie that saw Ajith fight and stretch his muscles. Fans went berserk seeing him use his fists and legs to battle the villains out, making Ajith ready for the 100% Commercial Ingredient Film Menu! He was branded ‘Thala’!
Meaty roles come to those who are in business and Ajith didn’t miss those opportunities. He was part of many multi-starrers as well, ‘Ullasam’ with Vikram, and a biggy in the form of ‘Kandukonden Kandukonden’ starring Malayalam super star Mammootty, Tamil star Abbas along with Bollywood heroines Tabu and Aishwarya. In ‘Kandukonden Kandukonden’, Ajith was at his charismatic best.
With experience counting on his side, Ajith became a saleable and dependable actor. With ups and downs, he was always a consistent performer. His ‘Villain’ and ‘God Father’ that was changed to ‘Varalaru’ both directed by K S Ravikumar, made the audience realize Ajith was an actor par excellence. Acting in a triple role in ‘Varalaru’, Ajith indicated his stand for difference in roles unlike his counterparts.
With commercial movies on one side, Ajith spares a lot of time for his devout passion of automobile racing. His interest for the sport is so humongous that the actor has spent exorbitantly on it. Racing on both bikes and cars, Ajith’s concentration was more towards the rocketing cars. After participating at various levels, he is currently participating in the Formula 2 championships. Ask him about his performance, his spirits are always high and he says it’s the interest that keeps him going!
On behalf of all our viewers we wish The Racer, The Actor , A wonderful Human – Mr.Ajith Kumar , a very Happy Birthday and Good Luck.
