Ajith Kumar: From Ordinary To Extraordinary
Ajith Kumar made his debut with Prema Pusthakam (Telugu) and his first Tamil film was “Amaravathi”, directed by then-newcomer Selva. It has been a rollercoaster ride for the actor and today, he is one of the biggest Tamil stars in the industry
Ajith Kumar was born on 1st May 1971 to a Palakkad Iyer father and a Sindhi mother in Secunderabad, a city north of Hyderabad, and was brought up in Chennai. As he dropped out of Asan Memorial Senior Secondary School in 1986, he took up work as a two wheeler auto mechanic, and got himself a driver’s licence to correspond with his interests, that of car / bike racing.
Opportunity Meets Preparation
Luck is when opportunity meets preparation. Let’s find out whether this holds true in Ajith’s case.
Ajith was always well-prepared and diligent.
Even though he had no higher Education, he could speak in 5 languages fluently.
At 18, Ajith Kumar had to take up a job so that he could meet his expenses for the career he was interested in, which was ‘racing’. Joining as an apprentice, he rose to be a merchandiser with a garment export company, doing small-time press ads and TV commercials occasionally. He had put in a substantial amount of money into racing and would borrow tyres from his friends who used to help, when the chains wore out as there was no money in racing at that time.
Following an accident of his, he was pushed by several agencies into modelling for print-media ads. Finally, he got an opportunity to work in films as an actor, and since he was always well-prepared, hard-working and talented, Opportunity had to come to him !! And Ajith has never looked back ever since !
On that note, Hirav Shah, India’s top Astro Strategist cum Business Astrologer, who has created a niche for himself in the fields of Corporate Businesses, Politics, Sports, Entertainment industry, Tourism and Hospitality, Real Estate sector and many other areas, with his extraordinary insights in business and command over astrology, also quotes the same thing but keeping in mind, the unprecedented times of our times.
Shah says, Success is the combination of Hard work, Preparedness, Talent and Luck and all are multiplied with each other, so if any of these factors are zero, then you will have no success!

So, is this enough since times are very difficult today?
