Vijay vs. Ajith
When you enter the late-30s or cross the 40s, and you have a string of past super-hits to your credit, contenders to the throne of the one and only Rajnikanth, face a huge dilemma: Their box office appeal appears to wane; not everything they touch turn into box-office gold.
There are isolated super-successes that proclaim their relevance to the industry but they are now, largely, victims of their success. It is mid-life crisis at its worst. Reinvent or perish. But does Ajith Kumar or Vijay, the two dashing 'young' superstars of Tamil cinema dare, and when they do so, how far are they willing to push the envelope?
As the two actors record another round of sterling success with 'Mankatha' and 'Velayutham', it is time to gauge their popularity. The choice is yours; we simply present you some facts.
