Ajith has requested his fans to not celebrate his birthday by trending any hashtags on social media in view of the coronavirus pandemic. Though fans are disappointed by this decision of their ‘thala’, they are appreciating him for taking such a decision at such a critical time.
According to sources close to Ajith, he is pained by the loss caused to lives and livelihood by Covid-19, and hence, did not want to celebrate his birthday this year, which falls on May 1.
However, his fans were planning grand celebrations on social media due to lockdown and wanted to trend hashtags praising the matinee idol. Now, following Ajith’s instruction, they have decided to keep calm.
On the work front, Ajith was shooting for ‘Valimai’ directed by Vinoth and produced by Boney Kapoor, when coronavirus crippled the functioning of the industry. Recently, the actor announced Rs 1.25 lakh donation to various bodies including the Centre and State, for carrying out relief works.
