A few months back, Ajith visited Madras Institute of Technology to know about the technical aspects of quadcopter. The latest update is that the MIT has appointed him as its Helicopter Test Pilot and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles’ System Adviser.

Thala Ajith will be assisting the institute in building advanced Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Medical Express-2018 UAV Challenge, which will be held in Queensland, Australia in the month of September. Despite his busy shooting schedule, Ajith will be contributing to this competition.

Though Ajith has been paid with a whopping salary of more than 30cr for his films, he will be only getting Rs 1000 for being the Helicopter Test Pilot and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles System Adviser. Sources say that Ajith has come forward to donate the pay offered by MIT for the education of poor students.

On the film front, Thala Ajith will begin the shoot of Viswasam by the end of this week in Hyderabad. A grand set is erected for the film and Nayanthara is also expected to join the shoot along with Ajith.
