Happy Birthday Ajith: Decoding why ‘The Ajith interview’ is a rarity

Born in Hyderabad, to a Palakkad Iyer father and a Sindhi mother from Kolkata, Ajith may have faced the challenges of being an ‘outsider’ working in the Tamil film industry. Well, it is easy to mistake Ajith for an introvert who has a hard time to articulate his thoughts in public. A responsible citizen who stands in the queue outside the polling booth. Ajith’s elusiveness only adds more layers to his ever-growing popularity and his secretive personality.
