“Rajini Is My God” : Ajith’s Exclusive Interview to Ananda Vikatan

Interview with Thala Ajith Kumar – Ananda Vikatan English Translation

‘I don’t want to promote my films speaking it to the public. If they’re worth watching, audiences will make it successful. I don’t want to cheat them by coming up with my own words of promotions’ started off Thala Ajith Kumar, who continued to answer some interesting questions.

How did you join Venkat Prabhu’s team?

Right from the days, we worked together in ‘Ji’, both me and Venkat Prabhu have been sharing a good friendship. I had asked him to come up with a script that has a negative character like ‘Vaali’ and I would do it without fail. Later, I got busy with ‘Billa’ and ‘Aasal’. I heard that Venkat Prabhu was doing a project for Cloud Nine Movies Banner and immediately called him up regarding the script. He said, the film is about 5 baddie and one amongst them is a terrible baddie. Immediately I accepted to sign the project.

Can you tell us about your character in this film?

My character’s name is Vinayak Mahadevan. I play the most villainous character and it is all this I can say for the moment.

You have been constantly involved in fights with directors Gautham Menon, Vishnuvardhan and Vishnuvardhan. Why is that?

I always believe in time. If our time is right, everything will happen in a good way. We weren’t able to work together at that time. That doesn’t mean we are enemies. If everything comes well with the situation, we will work together again.

Why did you disband your fans club?

I cannot specify the reason and I don’t want to perform post-mortem. I didn’t gain education properly, but I want my fans to be very well educated. I request my fans to study well, go to their jobs and carry on with their usual works. If my film is good, please come and watch it in theatres. This is more than enough.

‘Aadukalam’ has won 6 National awards. What is your view on the Tamil filmmakers and actors marking a great work in their careers?

I am not worthy to comment on the entire Tamil film industry. I am happy that my friends in Tamil film industry have succeeded well. I felt happy when Agathiyan won National awards for ‘Kadhal Kottai’ and I have the same feelings now as well.

How is Billa-2 going on?

The first schedule of 50days is being held in Hyderabad now following which the other schedules will be held in European countries. We are planning to complete the shooting by November. Soon after the completion, I will speak more about the film.

We all know that you and Rajnikanth are close friends. Did you call him up and wish him ‘Get Well Soon’ while he was sick?

After my parents, the only person in whom I saw God was Rajnikanth sir. I cannot reveal what I spoke to him. I want him to be happy always.

What is your take on present political rule in Tamil Nadu?

As a citizen, I have casted my vote and I am not here to comment anything on the political system. It’s people who elect their leaders according to their likes and dislikes. If I start commenting on this, I will be addressed as a supporter of one or the other political parties, which I don’t like at all.

How are Shalini and Anoushka?

Anoushka is now in LKG and she is desperately in need of more relatives and affection. She has made our nuclear family into joint family. I have brought my parents together and Shalini’s parents keep visiting our house regularly once in a week. Shalini kept banking all her hopes on me and trusted me. For past 11 years our family life is so happy and the reason is Shalini. I will be grateful to her for many births.

    இளைஞர்களின் விருப்ப நாயகனாக அஜீத் தேர்வு!


    வார நாளிதழ் ஒன்றின் சினிமா இணையதளம் நடத்திய, இன்றைய இளைஞர்களின் மனதில் இருக்கும் யூத்ஐகான் யார் என்ற கேள்விக்கு, அதிகப்படியான பேர் அஜீத்தை தேர்ந்தெடுத்துள்ளனர். தமிழகத்தின் பிரபல வார இதழின் சினிமா இணையதளத்தில், இப்போது இருக்கும் இளைஞர்களின் மனதில் இடம்பெற்றிருக்கும் யூத்ஐகான் யார் என்ற கேள்வி கேட்கப்பட்டிருந்தது. யூத்ஐகான் பட்டியலில் அஜீத், விஜய், ரஜினி, கமல், விக்ரம், தனுஷ், சிம்பு, ஆர்யா, விஷால் உள்ளிட்டவர்களின் பெயர்கள் இடம்பெற்றிருந்தன.கடந்த ஜூன் 23ம் தேதி முதல் துவங்கிய இந்த சர்வே ஜூலை 31ம் தேதியுடன் முடிவடைந்து, சர்வேயின் முடிவுகள் வெளியிடப்பட்டுள்ளன.

    கிட்டத்தட்ட 38நாட்கள் நடந்த இணையதள சர்வேயில் மொத்தம் 63, 434ஓட்டுகள் பதிவாகியுள்ளன. இதில் 43,384 ஓட்டு பெற்று அஜீத் முதலிடத்தை பிடித்துள்ளார். இவருக்கு அடுத்தபடியாக விஜய் 18,271 ஓட்டுகள் பெற்று இரண்டாவது இடத்தை பிடித்துள்ளார். கமல் 455 ஓட்டும், ரஜினி 376 ஓட்டும், சிம்பு 199 ஓட்டும், ஆர்யா 107 ஓட்டும், விக்ரம் 73 ஓட்டும், தனுஷ் 39 ஓட்டும் பெற்று அடுத்தடுத்த இடங்களை பிடித்தனர்.

    இதில் விஷேசம் என்னவென்றால் ஜூன் 23ம் தேதியிலிருந்து விஜய் தான் முதலிடத்தில் இருந்தார். ஆனால் கடைசி மூன்று நாட்களில் விஜய்யை பின்னுக்கு தள்ளிவிட்டு, அஜீத் முதலிடத்தை பிடித்திருக்கிறார். இதற்குகாரணம் விஜய்யை காட்டிலும், அஜீத்திற்கு தான் இணையதள ரசிகர்கள் அதிகம். இதற்கு முன்பு ஒருமுறை, வடஇந்திய இணையதளம் நடத்திய சர்வேயிலும் அஜீத்தான் முதலிடத்தை பிடித்தார் என்பது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது.

    What a man……

    I always think why is he not promoting his movie. But this great man has some other Idea.

    He does want to promote bad movies. He is just asking ” If my movie is good come and watch it, otherwise I dont want to give false statements.”

    The only actor in India who can speak simple words, whose basic Principle and whose also follow that…..

    I will always follow his word…….

    If you are good or bad lead your life, your own style….
