Earlier it used to be MGR and then Superstar Rajnikanth. Now almost every young heroes and directors have started using Thala Ajith Kumar for their lucky factors. Young superstar Silambarasan had used the banner of Thala in Manmadhan and in almost all the movies. Then Dhanush had the same thing for Maapillai. Of course, there have been many actors following the same practice.
The Pongal release ‘Vettai’ has the opening scene of Thala Ajith Kumar’s introduction scene in Mankatha. The audiences in theaters whistle that includes Aarya, but the sound was overshadowed by the audiences watching the film.
Lingusamy has a strong likeliness for Thala Ajith Kumar, because he was the one, who gave a great chance to direct him in the movie ‘JI’.
