This lockdown period has made a lot of cinema followers to look back at some of the nostalgic moments in the past. In this phase, we have seen a lot of unseen and rare throwback pictures of a lot of actors and celebrities. Having said that, one of the fans found a rare throwback picture of Thala Ajith and shared it on his social media page and the picture has now gone viral among the fans. This picture has been captured at the sets of Ajith’s Aasal, directed by Saran. Interestingly, Ajith is seen sharing a lighter moment with dance master Raju Sundaram and director Gaurav Narayanan (of Thoonganagaram fame) in this picture.

Gaurav recollected his memories of interacting with Ajith during that time and felt nostalgic about it. He said that he spent 30 minutes of quality time with Ajith and Raju Sundaram. He tweeted, “One of my fav pic with my fav master #rajusundaram and my ever fav #thala. This was taken at AASAL shooting spot. 30 minutes of non stop smiling and chatting. Still I remember each and every reaction thala gave when I make him laugh.” Gaurav’s tweet has also got a good reception from the Thala fans and it is indeed interesting to know these unknown stories about Ajith.

For the uninformed, director Gaurav Narayanan made an impressive debut with the rural action entertainer, Thoonganagaram, that starred Vemal and Anjali in the lead roles. Post that film, he made Sigaram Thodu with Vikram Prabhu, Sathyaraj and Ippadai Vellum with Udhayanidhi Stalin. Currently, he is busy scripting for his next film which is said to be inspired from a real life incident. It can be noted that Gaurav told, in one of his recent interviews with Galatta Media, that he has an impactful script for Vijay and Ajith, adding that it would be great if either of them agrees to do it. Let us hope that happens soon.

Gaurav will also be featuring as an actor in Vishnu Vishal's upcoming action thriller, FIR, directed by debutant Manu Anand. Ace director Gautham Vasudev Menon, Raiza Wilson, Manjima Mohan, Reba Monica John are some fo the other actors who will be acting in this film.
