Tamil actor Ajith Kumar’s request to not refer to him as ‘Thala’ has come as a surprise for his fans.

Taking to Twitter, Ajith’s spokesperson Suresh Chandra Wednesday said, “To the respected members of the media, public and genuine fans. I henceforth wish to be referred to as Ajith Kumar, Ajith or just AK and not as “Thala” or any other prefix before my name. I sincerely wish you all a beautiful life filled with good health, happiness, success, peace of mind and contentment forever.”

Meanwhile, his fans flocked social media with memes while many said the move increased their respect towards Ajith.

The 2001 movie Dheena gave Ajith the nickname ‘Thala’, meaning chief or the superior one. He had dismantled his fan clubs in 2011 on his 40th birthday after he found that the clubs were misusing his name to fetch funds. His upcoming movie ‘Valimai’ is set to release during the Pongal holiday in January next year.
