Ajmal has become a star after playing the powerful politician villain in KV Anand’s Ko. He has been getting a lot of offers to do negative roles in Tamil, but has been politely refusing them.
Ajmal’s priority is clearly doing the lead roles in Kollywood. One of the movies he has signed as hero before Ko’s release is Karuppampatti, directed by newcomer Prabhu Raja Cholan, a former associate of Shankar.
Karuppampatti has Ajmal and two girls Aparnaa Bajpai and Archana. As per the storyline there is a kissing scene between Ajmal and Aparna in a very crucial moment in the film which was being shot in Palani.
However, on the day of the shoot Ajmal refused to kiss Aparna who had agreed for the scene. A stumped director Prabhu Raja tried explaining to Ajmal that the scene was crucial. But Ajmal remained adamant and refused the kiss scene!
Ajmal’s explanation was: "My father and mother wanted me to be a full time doctor and they send me to Russia to study medicine though my heart was in movies. Now that I have entered films without their
approval, all they wanted me to do was never to kiss or do vulgar scenes on screen. I have to keep my promise to them."
After Ajmal’s explanation, director Prabhu reluctantly agreed and made the lip lock between his lead characters into a peck on the heroine’s cheek!
