Actor Rahman who shared the screen space with Thala Ajith Kumar in Billa, recalls that he had different thought about Ajith Kumar before being a part of the film which changed completely afterwards. The actor in a recent television show revealed that he had heard rumours about the star that he would not treat his co-stars with respect and would arrive late to the sets.
It is after acting together with Ajith, that he realised that Ajith was not what he thought to be and felt bad for misunderstanding him. The actor recalls that when he was on the sets he realized that Ajith was a very simple person who respects not only his co-stars but also the technicians right to the light boy.
Initially though Rahman was skeptical on doing the villain role in the film pointing out that being a hero in the Malayalam film industry; he did not want to do a negative character. However, the director had convinced him to do the role which has helped the actor know the truth about Ajith’s character.
