One of the hottest trending topics in Twitter today is about celebrating 24 years of Ajithism. Though Ajith has done an unaccredited role in ‘En Veedu En Kanavar’ (1990), people consider Prema Pusthagam to be first (Telugu) and Amaravathi to be his first film in Tamil and it has been 24 years since he started working on for his first film .
Ajith’s journey deserves to be talked about. On the very same day 24 years ago, nobody would have thought of him to become one of the most celebrated stars. It’s been a journey with a lot of struggles especially during his early days and he had to do it all by himself with very little help from external sources. Of course, we would have to thank a lot of directors for helping Ajith to shape up his career.
In the past 10 years, Ajith has completely avoided public events, disbanded his fan clubs and does not interact with his fans much. Ajith has given some memorable films over the past 24 years but one feels he could have given more successful films. It is a sad part that his potential has not been used to the fullest.
Having said all that, the craze for him has always been on the uphill. His success story is an enigma. We wish Ajith to keep up his good show and give us a lot more successful movies for his fans to cherish!
