Ajith says that he knows his enemies
We are continuing the interview with Ajith who said last week that he has encountered all kinds of emotions and has also overcome it. Now the excerpts of his interview:
There is an allegation against all the actors that they are increasing their salaries. What is your comment on this?
When actors come to act, they say, “ Brother, you have no market. Only this much is your salary. Later on you will earn Crores and Crores of rupees.” After few years when there is a market for an actor, you are telling to reduce the salary. Nobody knows that when one can earn money.
Many a time, you are targeted with controversies. Why is it that you maintain silence instead of retorting back?
If a person keeps quiet, that doesn’t mean he is a coward. We can fight with a valiant person. It is a matter of pride, even if you lose with him. It is long time since I have met a valiant person. There is lesser number of people who speak face to face these days. We can counter a person who throws an arrow on us directly. How can we counter a person who throws arrows on us by utilizing others? But there are others who purposely wants gab quarrels. They use caste or religion as their shields. They are trying to twist the minds of people. What is the point in fighting with these people. If I get down and fight with these people, it is a dirty thing for me. Media always say that there is big opening for my films. Keeping this in mind, these people spread rumours either about me or about my film. Because they feel that by doing so, the opening of the film will be affected. Apart from this they are complaining about my fans. My fans also undergo harassment by these people. They doing this because my fans will go against me. This is one of the reasons for dissolving my fan clubs. I cannot accept that anger on me should not be shown against my fans. Now I have dissolved the fan clubs. Now you can oppose me. Don’t attack my fans. I don’t have enemies in the political field but they are in cinema and also in politics. I know who they are very well.
It seems that you are indirectly meaning Vijay?
I am not mentioning about my brother Vijay. You also don’t try to twist.
Whom do you think is creating problems for you?
No political leaders create problems. People around them are trying to create problems. Who is there to take care of these people? Who is there to control them? People close to the leaders do not bother about this. Only these ordinary people give list saying that it had been given by the top brass. Is it civilized to phone and ask that whether it is true. So far nobody understood this. Now I have explained this. That’s all.
Nobody need not lift us up nor give a helping hand. Nobody need not help us to grow but allow everyone of us to work so that we can live.
