Magizh Thirumeni about Ajith Kumar

Meanwhile, a throwback interview of director Magizh Thirumeni, in which he spoke about his admiration for Ajith Kumar, is now going viral on the internet. In the video, the talented filmmaker, who considers the Thunivu star a role model, heaped praise on him. According to the filmmaker, Ajith Kumar is truly a self-made star, who made it big in the industry without the support of a godfather. "What a style, what a handsome man, what a body language. And Ajith sir himself has said one dialogue that defines him - 'In my life, every day, every minute and every second are carved by myself'. Especially in Tamil film industry, to reach this height of stardom without any support is not at all a small thing," explained Magizh Thirumeni.
