Ajith, a school dropout is
presently the leading young actor in the Tamil film industry. He started his
film career through the movie 'Prema Pusthagam' (telugu) in 1993 produced by
Poorna Chandra Rao. The film was a success which gained him a film career in
Tamil. With the release of his first film in tamil 'Amaravathi' directed by
Selva he got involved in a motor bike accident. His spinal cord was affected.
Soon after the recovery his movie Pavithra comes on screen which was followed by
flop films. The Tamil film industry wrote him off but then came a super hit
movie 'Aasai', which proved a turning point in his film career.
His mega hit was Kaathal Kottai which was directed by Agathiyan but he was too
immature to handle the success which resulted in a string of flops. Then came 'Valee'
which was a mega hit.... [
