Here is a pictorial faceoff between Tamil superstars Vijay and Ajith, both of who have Pongal releases lined up
Vijay will turn 40 this year, Ajith is 42. Both are mass heroes, known for their unabashed choice of commercial films. Vijay is Ilayathalapathy to his fans, Ajith is Thala. Their fan following is massive and films of both heroes have huge openings with Kollywood-style celebrations of palabhishekam (milk baths) for cutouts, crackers and the deafening sound of whistles when they make their entry on screen.
With Vijay's 'Jilla' and Ajith's 'Veeram' all set to clash at the box-office this week, it is time to gauge their star power.
