Did you know Ajith Kumar was advised not to marry Shalini?

Ajith Kumar and his wife Shalini are one of the power couples in Kollywood. It is well known that they fell in love while shooting for the film Aamar in 1991 and the rest is history. It's been 21 years since they are married. But did you know that Ajith Kumar was advised to not marry Shalini? Yes, if you are wondering who advised Ajith such a thing, then let us tell you that it was Actor and director Ramesh Khanna.

Ramesh Khanna shared that he was not aware that Ajith Kumar and Shalini were in a relationship that time and advised him not to marry her. “Since I’m working I am not looking at that. People will talk and you can’t stop them from talking. They will do what they find interesting and I am doing what I find interesting, which is going to set. I think it’s ok. And the thing is as long as I have amazing work to do and working with directors I love, and as long as people accept me and watch me, I am really happy,”

He got to know about Ajith Kumar and Shalini's love after director Saran sarcastically warned him of consequences for warning the actor. However, Ramesh also later revealed he attended the wedding of Ajith and Shalini's that took place in the following year.
