Thala Ajit is known to give his best to every film he does. His most recent appearance was for a friendly cameo in Sridevi’s English Vinglish, which sent fans into a tizzy despite the short appearance.

Recently Ajith hit the gym with a vengeance for getting into fitter shape for Vishnuvardhan’s next untitled film for producer AM Ratnam. The film also has Nayan, Arya and Taapsee with music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

Now the latest news that sify.com has learnt is that there was a gruelling action scene in the film that was shot on Ajit. The stunt was very demanding physically and would have drained out any other actor but Ajit it is learnt gave it his best, without any complaints.

Ajit had to be suspended upside down for one particular fight scene in the film. Apparently, the unit shot from 8 pm to 8 am the next day and apart from short breaks in between, Ajit had to be suspended upside down continuously. Normally for any ordinary person is suspended upside for more than a few minutes it will cause nausea and headache.

Vishnu the director told Ajith that he could do it with a double and match it with close-up’s but Thala insisted on doing it himself. The unit hands were surprised to see the big star take it all without any grimace and co –operate beautifully with the director and unit.

Remember Ajit has undergone several operations and has a bad back, yet there was full co-operation from the artist. Now remains to be seen how the entire sequence looks on the screen, given the hard work put in by Thala for it.
