Ajith Kumar, who popularized the ‘salt-n-pepper’ look in Tamil films like never before, has lauded his Mollywood counterpart and actor Jayaram’s look terming the latter as ‘handsome-looking’.
Ajith doesn’t put on wig or dye his hair and appears in his natural salt-n-pepper look in his films for the past few years. His look was lauded for the first time in his Venkat Prabhu-directed Mankatha, easily the most successful film in his career as on date. Ajith has continued with his appearance in films such as Arrambam, Veeram, Yennai Arindhaal and Vedalam.
He would be spotted in the same look in his upcoming Siva titled film Vivegam. It appears that Ajith’s courage has rubbed on other heroes too. Jayaram, who has starred in plenty of Tamil films in the past, attempted this look in his latest film. As Ajith is his family friend, he reportedly passed on his look in the film to Shalini (Ajith’s wife) asking her to get her husband’s comments about his looks.
Ajith has messaged back stating Jayaram looked ‘very handsome’ and added that he (Jayaram) looked better than himself in salt-n-pepper mode. Jayaram has become very excited at getting Ajith’s appreciation!
