Ajith Kumar is one of leading Superstars of Tamil Cinema and was Formula 2 Race winner at “British Formula 3 Season”.
Born to a Sindhi mother and Kerala father, Ajith was never interested in acting and was an aspirant of Motor Racing. In order to fund himself for the racing, Ajith turned a model and later actor as the movies were most happening and money spinners. He made debut in a minor role of the student in En Veedu En Kanavar (1990).
His first appearance as a solo lead was with Prema Pusthakam (1992) in Telugu and it’s the only direct Telugu film he acted till date. He has to adjust with minor or second lead roles in movies like Paasamalargal along with Arvind Swamy and Rajavin Parvaiyile with Vijay during his initial years.
It was Vasanth’s Aasai (dubbed in Telugu as Aasha Aasha Aasha) that established Ajith as the established upcoming Hero to Tamil Cinema. His popularity began to rise with the National Award winning movie Kadhal Kottai that got dubbed in Telugu as Premalekha. Post super hit of Kadhal Kottai, Ajith had tasted 5 back to back flops and bounced back strongly with SJ Surya’s Vaali and he was the star on the rise in no time. The handsome actor is married to his co-star and former actress Shalini in 2000.
