Ananda Vikatan Ajith Kumar interview
Thala Ajith Kumar is ready for his next now. He has now completed shooting for his upcoming film Billa-2 and gives an open interview.
Why do you take long intervals between each of your films?
I strongly believe in the formula of doing a film per year. Despites success or failures, I feel comfortable acting in one movie a year. Since Mankatha has become a raging hit, it doesn’t mean Ajith Kumar has to do a movie for every 2 months. Even a rice drop has the name written to whom it should be consumed and so is the offers. No one can grab the offers that are meant for me.
How is your relationship with fans after disbanding fans club?
They’re in my heart and I am there in their hearts. There is no confusion between us.
MGR-Sivaji, Rajnikanth-Kamal Hassan, Ajith-Vijay – Who do you think is the superstar now?
I don’t want to comment anything on this. For me, Rajnikanth sir is the only superstar and it is people who’ll make decisions on setting the next one on this chair. When you’re walking on the road, your attention will get distracted when you keep looking out both sides, your path gets changed. So I want to just focus on the road I am travelling and I’ll be there, where it leads me. So I don’t want to keep myself distracted with these elements.
Will Ajith Kumar’s path lead to politics?
To be frank, I came to film industry for earning more money and to lead a luxurious life. I had no intentions of helping the society and spreading message. I am sure people are so intelligent and know the difference between reality and artificialness. I am happy if people like my movies and if not, I accept their criticisms and make sure that I don’t commit the same mistakes again.
So are you sure you won’t enter politics?
Too many cooks spoil the broth – I strongly believe this proverb and follow it. In a kitchen, if one or two cooks are involved in cooking, the dish will be delicious and if the same kitchen has around 10 cooks, the dish literally becomes unable to taste. In all likelihood, we have lots and lots of political parties and there have been many veteran personalities, who have been into it over the ages. Now if I launch political party, it will be an unjust act to confuse myself and confuse others. To be precise, I am not worthy of becoming a politician.
