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.

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
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

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.
