Ajith was shooting for his upcoming film in Bulgaria when news about the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha’s demise reached him.
The star immediately sent out a press release expressing his deep condolences. Not stopping at that, he decided to rush down to Chennai to pay his last respects. With no flights available immediately from Bulgaria, Ajith flew down from Romania.
He and his wife Shalini paid their homage to the departed soul early this morning. Ajith also paid his last respects to noted journalist and actor Cho Ramasamy, who passed away at the Apollo Hospitals earlier today. Sources in the trade state that Ajith will be returning to Bulgaria this evening.
Ajith has always shared a very good rapport with J Jayalalitha and his gesture of flying down from a foreign country to pay homage has certainly earned him a lot of respect not only among his fans but the public as well.
It is worth mentioning here that Ajith is currently shooting for his untitled film "Thala 57". Directed by Siva, the film has Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan playing the heroines. Vivek Oberoi has been roped in to play the villain in the movie.
