Ajith inspired by AR Rahman
A R Rahman's double-Oscar and a double Grammy seems to have inspired Ajith. Rahman's rendition in Tamil at the awards ceremony had left an impact in the actor.

At a function organised to felicitate Chief Minister M Karunanidhi by Tamil film world, Ajith gave a speech stating that 'actors only want to act and are not interested in taking a stand on issues.'

The words immediately got appreciation from Rajinikanth, who stood up and put his hands together!

Says Ajith about his speech, 'my role model is A R Rahman, who is a true Tamilian. He has worked against all odds and struggled hard in life to get to where he is now. He made people forget their worries by providing them with superb music, which fetched him awards at the global level. And, when he got the opportunity to stand in front of a global audience, he spoke in Tamil to tell the world that he was from Tamilnadu in India.'
