‘Thala’ Ajith does things in a very different manner than others and his peers in Kollywood. Post Billa and Mankatha, the actor has sort of become a ‘style icon’ in the industry. Despite his move in disbanding and dissolving all the fans’ clubs operating in his name last year, his fan base appears to be remaining intact; the colossal success of Mankatha is proof enough of this fact.
Unlike actors and actresses who take off to cooler zones within the country and abroad, Ajith has his own unique way of winding himself up during holidays or whenever he feels like taking a break from the shoot of his films. The unwritten rule in Kollywood is that actors and actresses usually leave for vacation with their families, spend some time at their favourite destination to return back to Kollywood after a few weeks to resume work.
Whenever he can afford some time to relax, Ajith immediately rushes to the Shirdi Saibaba’s Temple in Maharashtra. Worshipping Saibaba peacefully, it seems, is the most favourite unwinding technique for Ajith who never misses out on his weekly visits to the Saibaba’s Temple in Chennai whenever he shoots in the city. Some time back, his family members left for London for vacation while Ajith’s commitments made him stay put back home in Chennai.
Ajith is now looking forward first to the audio-launch and then then theatrical release of his Billa-2. In the meantime, he has already started shooting for his upcoming untitled film directed by Vishnuvardhan (of Billa fame) which has Nayantara, Aarya and Tapasee playing prominent roles.
