Director AL Vijay’s latest directorial Lakshmi hit the theaters on Friday and the movie has got a good start. The film stars Prabhu Deva and Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead along with child artist Ditya. The dance-based movie is first of its kind in Kollywood.

In an Exclusive interview with Galatta, AL Vijay has opened up about his travel with Thala Ajith and revealed some exciting back stories.

Speaking about his debut film Kireedam with Ajith, Vijay said, “At that time I was a struggling assistant director, I was fighting to get a chance. I became a director only after he (Ajith) said ok. I might have done so many things after that, but he was the first person to give me that place. I am nowhere because of Ajith sir only. I am always"

Vijay also added, “The first meeting happened in Hyderabad, It was a big magic actually. He saw my ad film and wanted me to direct one of his movies. It was an accident and those are great memories in my life. When we worked, he was so encouraging each and every day. He supports and cooperates well"

Talking apart from movies, Vijay said, “Personally I have traveled with him so much. Even after our movie, we used to meet and go out for dinner. Those are golden memories for me”


Ajith is currently busy with the shoot of Viswasam directed by Siva. The team recently released the first look poster of the movie which featured two Ajith which got the fans all hyped up.
