One of the handsome and upcoming heroes in the Tamil film industry, actor Ajmal is a die-hard family man. The actor gave a good account of his acting credentials, albeit in a role with negative shades, in the super-hit film ‘Ko’ which had Jiiva, Karthika and Piaa Bajpai in lead roles an was directed by K.V. Anand. Post the success of ‘Ko’, Ajmal has got quite a few film offers on hand.
More often than not, it’s the heroine(s) who tend to shy away from starring in lip-lock sequences with the hero on screen. However, in the case of Ajmal, it was the actor who refused to lock lips with his heroine in his upcoming film ‘Karuppampatti’. Stunning-looking Aparna Bajpai plays Ajmal’s heroine in the film, thereby debuting in Kollywood as heroine.
The film is being directed by Praburaja Chozhan. The film’s climax sequences were filmed in the holy town of Palani. In one particular sequence, as per the script, Ajmal expresses his love to Aparna who immediately accepts his love. Ajmal would then have to embrace her and indulge in locking lips with her. When Aparna nodded in agreement to star in the lip-lock sequence after Chozhan explained to her about the significance of the sequence, Ajmal didn’t agree to it and asked to be ‘excused’.
Instead of locking lips with Aparna, Ajmal finally planted a kiss on her cheek. The shoot was reportedly delayed by a couple of hours during when Chozhan tried in vain to convince Ajmal to perform the ‘lip-lock’. Later, talking about his reluctance to star in a lip-lock sequence, Ajmal said that his parents were always against him becoming an actor from the very beginning.
“I became an actor after agreeing to certain conditions. One of those conditions is that I’d never lock lips with any of the heroines. I’d also not star in vulgar-looking sequences and won’t be uttering dialogues which have ‘double-meanings’. As on date, I have been meeting all these conditions. If I breach them, I won’t be allowed to enter my house,” said Ajmal, looking as innocent as ever.
