The only thing that is constant is change, said Greek philosopher Heraclitus. This quote comes true in every aspect of life and every other profession. If we take glitzy film industry into consideration, nothing can remain same as creativity is the life blood of the industry. Stories and actors evolve with time. And in our Tamil films, many understand and follow it and one among the followers is Ajith Kumar.
While his counterparts have continued to do typical roles that they have been doing since ages, Ajith Kumar, wisely, is changing with the times. Thala did not have any qualms to do a middle-aged man with silver hairs famously called as salt and pepper look for Mankatha. In an industry that loves to see their stars in tried and tested way, it was a risky decision taken by the actor as his critics would say that it was a sign of his losing charm.
Well, Ajith Kumar emerged as a winner with his salt and pepper look winning appreciation from audience. But many thought that he would not repeat it again. However, he went ahead with the same hair style for his Arrambam and Veeram. All these films projected him as middle-aged man and that fitted him very well.
After retaining it for a few movies, it was said that Ajith Kumar would change his look for his next movie with Gautham Menon. But now sources have said that the actor wants to do the role that fits his age and he is going to retain the salt and pepper look for his untitled forthcoming venture.
Ajith knows that he can't do college guy roles anymore. Hence, he wants to do movies that will entertain audience and make people connect with his characters. So, the salt and pepper look is here to stay for Thala.
