Ajith is one of the most popular South Indian actors who has a huge fan base across the globe. The actor is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming movie 'Valimai' which was delayed for almost two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Now the actor has penned a letter to his fans, the public and the media, humbly requesting everyone to refer to him as Ajith, Ajith Kumar or AK and not as "Thala". This note was released to the public via his manager's official social media account.
