Ajith as a kid has little outlook to Tamil, as his mother was Sindhi and father a Keralite. Possibly he faced many difficulties at his first few years in the industry. Truly, film makers of ‘Amaravathi’ did not allow him to dub his voice. At his initial days he was not offered with many lead roles. In spite all this he stood strongly and impressed all the audience with his fascinating dialogue delivery. He was very passionate to bikes and cars at his young age, but due to their family’s financial constraint he shattered his dreams. Anyhow, after becoming Tamil industry superstar, ‘Thala’ went ahead to fulfill his childhood dreams participating FIA Formula Two Championship.
Ajith Kumar got married to his girlfriend ‘Shalini’ who was a popular actress. She was a Christian and ‘Thala’ took a decision to marry in both customs of Hinduism along with Christianity. When he was finalized for the role of Rajinikanth starrer ‘Billa’ remake, there were many discussions whether this hero would do justice to the role. But when the film got released, even the critics gave grand applause for him which was directed by Vishnuvardhan. By the way the real ‘Billa’ was remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Don’. Anyhow, ‘Thala’ successfully completes 23 years of his career in Tamil cinema.
