Today Kollywood’s beloved “Baby Shalini” celebrates her birthday. Shalini debuted in the film industry as a child artist and even to this day, many refer to her as Baby Shalini! She completed about 80 films as a child artist in Tamil, Malayalam, and Telugu!
Her first Tamil film En Bommukutti Ammavukku (remake of Malayalam film Ente Mammattikuttiyammakku) is still fresh in the minds of many avid Tamil film fans.
That is the reason Kollywood welcomed her with open arms when she returned as the heroine in Kadhalukku Mariyadhai. The film’s stupendous success shot her fame sky-high and she became the heart-throb of the youth.
A couple of years and a few Malayalam films later, she acted in Amarkalam opposite Ajith; that is when the Cupid struck and love bloomed between this beautiful angel and Ajith. They were deeply in love with each other and decided to get married as soon as possible.
This cut short Shalini’s career which touched a new high following her performance in Mani Ratnam’s Alaipayuthe; she quit acting as she wanted to devote all her time to Ajith. Early this year, the couple was blessed with a daughter who is as cute as Shalini was in the days of Bommakutti Ammavukku.
Ajith and Shalini are the perfect example of a happy couple!
