That a lot of young actors have set Ajith as their role model and admire the Thala a lot is an open secret in these parts. The latest addition to the list, which has names like STR, Jai and Bharath, is Ganesh Venkatraman.
The actor of ‘Unnaipol Oruvan’ and ‘Abhiyum Naanum’ fame recently met Ajith in Mumbai and describes it as a enlightening experience. "Thala shared his experiences from the time he was a budding experience. His life is a lesson for everyone," Ganesh says.
The up and coming actor, who spent nearly five hours with Ajith, says, "Ajith sir told me: ‘Ganesh, always do what you like and what makes you happy, satisfied. That’s the only secret to make you successful in life’."
Showering rich laurels on Ajith, Ganesh says, "He is an excellent human being, who is so down to earth. I knew him for more than four years. He welcomed me to the film industry when I made my debut in Abhiyum Naanum and encouraged me a lot."
