Ajith Kumar, who underwent knee surgery at a private hospital in Chennai on November 12, has been advised complete rest for the next three months. Ajith injured his knee while shooting the climax sequence of his Tamil film Vedalam, which is successfully running in cinemas
The grand opening of actor Ajith's film Vedalam is being seen as a new high at the Tamil box office. Experts say it's the biggest ever opening, beating even superstar Rajinikanth's Lingaa that clocked Rs 13 crores last year. Many now look at Thala, as he's fondly called, as the next superstar in the making
Trade analyst Trinath told IANS, "With Rs 15.3 crores on the day of its release in Tamil Nadu, Vedalam has become the biggest grosser in Tamil cinema, surpassing the previous record of Kaththi, starring Vijay, which had grossed Rs 14.3 crores on the first day"
Excitement spills all over Shruti Haasan's voice as she talks of Ajith's Vedalam. Shruti says that Vedalam would be her first stint at comedy. "Yes, attempting to make people laugh is the toughest challenge for an actor. You can't call my character a comical one, but yeah, I have tried humour in my own way"
Ajith's Vedalam has raked in Rs 15.5 crores on day one and around Rs 12 crores on the second day, and has left behind superstar Rajinikanth's Lingaa whose opening day collections read Rs 13 crores in 2014. Experts say that Ajith, who has a huge fan following down South, could be the next superstar of Tamil cinema.
Reports suggests that Tamil superstar Ajith will replace Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo appearance in the Tamil and Telugu versions of Sridevi's comeback film English Vinglish.
Critics have appreciated Ajith Kumar's Billa 2 for its excellent dialogues but the movie gets a thumbs down as the story fails to engage the audience.
