He has seen it all before. No actor active in the industry for more than 20 years has undergone so many treatments and surgeries like Ajith has undergone. The actor still prefers performing his own stunts and had performed some daredevil stunt sequences even in his latest film Billa-2. By the sheer number of surgeries Ajith has undergone, he is easily the Indian ‘Jackie Chan’.
Ajith plays the lead role in director Vishnuvardhan’s untitled next film. The film pits him opoposite Nayanthara, his heroine in films such as Billa and Aegan.During the filming of a stunt sequence in the film that Ajith suffered an injury. Known for his unnerving commitment, Ajith, however, neglected his pain and continued to shoot. The problem has now reportedly flared up needing an immediate surgery.
Ironically enough, it’s the same spinal cord which has already seen enough treatments and surgeries which would go under the knife again. An avid racing specialist, Ajith had met with many serious accidents in the past. In one of his earlier interviews, he had himself spoken about the many injuries, scars and surgeries he had had to endure.
Doctors have diagnosed ‘dislocation of a bone’ and have advised Ajith to go for an early surgery and not to delay the issue any further. Ajith spoke with a marked gait at the wedding reception of director Jyothikrishna, few days back.
As Ajith is all set to start work in a new film to be made by Siruthai Siva from 10th December, it appears that he’d undergo the surgery in a couple of days from now.
Let’s wish him a speedy recovery!
