Ever since Rajinikanth was bestowed with the title 'Superstar', apart from celebrating Rajinikanth's success, fans have also remained curious to know who would inherit the prestigious title once Rajinikanth calls it a day.
Over the last few years, debate among fans has intensified and
in few years from now Tamil cinema could well witness a new
Superstar. So who is the new Superstar in the making? To start off
with, two worthy contenders who may take that spot in the future
are Ajith and
While Ilayathalapathy Vijay could go on to become the next
Superstar, let us first see why Thala Ajith could get there before
Vijay without even breaking a sweat. Going by the recent
occurrences in Kollywood, Ajith's star status has enhanced
incredibly not just among fans but also among other
His choice of films have been impeccable of late. With his
latest release Yennai Arindhaal all set to cross the 100
crore mark which would subsequently result in three back to back
blockbuster movies dished out by Ajith, he is now one step away in
starting a new, healthy trend in Kollywood.
All that being said, let's now look into the top 10 reasons why
Ajith could be the next Superstar of Kollywood. Check out
the slides below for the much awaited top 10
Self Made Man
Like Rajinikanth, Thala Ajith is a self made man. Though it
might sound like it has nothing to do with becoming the next
Superstar, the fact remains that respect is the ultimate tool that
will help anyone to gain the numero uno status and Ajith has ample
A Phenomenon Called Ajith
Like it or not, over the last few years, Ajith is heading in the
right direction to become a phenomenon worldwide, if he has not got
there as of yet. Post Baashha, Rajinikanth was turned into
a force very quickly and hence sometimes, all it might take is a
couple of months to turn someone into a force to reckon
Good Off-Screen Image
If someone needs to carry the title 'Superstar' on his
shoulders, he must have a very good image not only on the stage but
also behind it and Ajith has done exactly that throughout his
career. Pick any random movie buff on the street and he/she will
have only good things to share about Ajith.
Magnitude Screen Presence
Ajith's impressive screen presence is his biggest advantage.
That, in fact is one of the most important asset any Superstar
should have. Rajinikanth had it and now undoubtedly, Ajith has
Open To Experiments
Ajith is one among very few actors who experiments a lot while
managing to fabricate enough hit movies to keep his fans
interested. Though Rajinikanth stopped experimenting in the latter
part of his career, people belonging to the next generation might
want to see a Superstar who is open to experiments.
Ajith's style comes from his body language. Post
Mankatha, his style quotient has increased drastically and
has never looked back since. Being a stylish actor always helps in
the race of becoming the next Superstar.
Ready To Embrace Negative Roles
Rajinikanth started his career doing negative roles and went on
to become a Superstar. Carrying off negative roles with ease have
always been appreciated by fans. Ajith has understood that and
hence has already stamped his authority as a hero who could also be
Villain at times.
Massive Fan Following
Ajith's fan base is gigantic not only in India but also
overseas. With Yennai Arindhaal reaching Japanese
theatres, Ajith's fan base in the foreign countries could multiply
in the next couple of years.
King Of Opening
Ajith is not labelled 'king of opening' for nothing. All his
movies usually enjoy a massive opening regardless of the movie's
content. Box office numbers do matter at the end of the day
especially if it's a Superstar's film.
Favourite Among Celebrities
As mentioned earlier, Ajith is not only followed by fans but is
also followed by many celebrities with utmost interest. Fellow
actors tend to play a major role in deciding who the next Superstar
is and Ajith scores big in that aspect of the game.
