In a recent interview to a leading English daily, when asked about his dream actor, Sudeep quickly chirped in the name of Ajith. Sudeep also praised Ajith for playing his age on the screen and also said that "it needs a lot of guts to do that." Heaping more laurels on the Vedalam star, Sudeep quoted, ""I feel he is very real. He doesn't fake anything, both on and off the screen. When I see in interviews and his lifestyle, I think it's something amazing."
