Legendary playback singer S P Balasubrahmanyam has made an important claim about Ajith. Speaking at a music reality show, SPB said that it was he who had introduced Ajith to the cine industry, getting him a role as a hero in Tollywood through a Telugu producer.
“Ajith first acted in a Telugu film, and I was the one who introduced him to that producer. Ajith and my son Charan are classmates. They used to write their matric exams in Andhra. When Ajith went to advertisement shoots, he used to wear Charan’s shoes and clothes because of a sentimental reason,” he said.
Adding more, SPB said, “The thing I like the most about Ajith is that, he has stopped appearing on Television shows, or giving interviews to newspapers and magazines, or posting something on social media that creates a furore. He is only concentrating on films, and his family.”
The singer also said that he had suggested Ajith’s name for ‘Amaravathi’ to director Selvaa, when the filmmaker requested his help to find a new face. He had told him about Ajith and his performance in the Telugu film, ‘Prema Pusthagam’.
