According to a famous saying in Tamil, "people who intend to help others often land themselves in trouble", this proverb has taken shape in none other than Thala Ajith's life.
Everyone are aware of Ajith's helping nature, but most of you wouldn't have known the fact that Ajith's never ending intention to help others had once backfired leaving him in the soup.
The story goes like this: during the release of the Balu Mahendra directorial film, Raman Abdullah in 1997, there was a huge misunderstanding of sorts between Tamil film industry and Film Employees Federation of South India(FEFSI).
Following a strike from FEFSI, Tamil film producers had decided not to engage any technician or worker associated with FEFSI. When FEFSI was helpless, it was Ajith who had reportedly come to its rescue.
After that incident, Ajith, who was to act in a big budget movie was suddenly sidelined from the project by its producer as he had extended his support towards FEFSI.
This FEFSI issue could well be one of the reasons why Ajith doesn't actively take part in any of the gatherings organized by either FEFSI or any other association within the Kollywood fraternity.
Interestingly, a few years later, when the same producer had incurred heavy losses due to his previous movies, it was Ajith who had come forward to help the producer by agreeing to act in his movie.
His association with that particular producer did not fade away as they went on to dish out two other movies with the first two becoming massive hits.
Even after his helping nature landing him in trouble, Ajith has never refrained from extending his hand of support to those who are in need of it.
