Everyone in the Tamil film fraternity is kicked about the forthcoming star cricket tournament and rightly so, for it is being organized for a noble cause. But, for Thala Ajith this tournament is a bad idea.
According to the latest report, Ajith will neither participate nor support the event and the reason behind his decision is more logical than controversial.
It is said that the Mankatha star is against the idea of collecting money from commoners and fans in order to construct the edifice, for which money is being raised at the moment.
Instead, Ajith has recommended his co-stars to pitch in with money as per their own strengths and convenience. In fact, it is reported that Ajith is ready to contribute in a big way towards the construction of the building.
The star cricket tournament, which requires fans and cricket lovers to buy tickets in order to witness the event, is all set to take place at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai from April 17th.
While biggies like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Chiranjeevi are expected to attend the gathering, organized by the Actors' Association, Ajith might not make his presence felt.
It is worth recollecting that the Yennai Arindhaal actor had made a similar decision when he turned down the invitation to attend a star show in Singapore years ago.
Back then, Vijayakanth, the then President of the South Indian Artistes' Association (SIAA) had organized a star-studded event in Singapore in an attempt to get rid of the debts of the 'Nadigar Sangam'.
While almost every Tamil artistes had participated, Thala Ajith was against the idea of collecting money from the people of Singapore, just to clear the debts of an organization back home. It is said that he donated 10 Lakh rupees instead.
