In Vetrimaaran-directed “Visaaranai”, which released in theatres last week, Ajay played a conniving and sadistic police officer.

Since the film’s release, he has been getting extremely positive feedback for his role.

“Although it is a negative character, people have accepted it wholeheartedly. When I watched the first show with my director and walked out, I feared I would be hated by all, but the exact opposite happened. I’m glad they all liked it,” he said.

The film, which is partly based on Tamil novel “Lock Up”, deals with police brutality. It stars Dinesh, Murugadoss, Samuthirakani and Kishore in important roles.

Ajay admits he was teary-eyed in the interrogation scenes.

“I was in tears when I had to beat up Dinesh black and blue. Although we used dummy batons, the force with which it was used made me so uncomfortable. But we had to continue shooting, because these were crucial scenes of the film,” he said.
