Thala Ajith and Shalini are one of the favorite couples of Kollywood. They fell in love in the set of their only film together, Amarkalam and got married in 2000. Two decades of love and two beautiful children later, they are still going strong and seen as the idol celebrity couple of Tamil cinema.

While everyone knows about their love story, many didn't know that Ajith and Shalini tried to keep their relationship under wraps in the initial stages.

Malayalam actor and Shalini's co-star Kunchacko Boban revealed that Ajith and Shalini kept in touch using his phone while she was acting in Malayalam movie 'Niram'.

According to the actor, Ajith used to call to speak to Shalini, and to avoid suspicion from her parents, Kunchacko used to say 'Sona, AK-47 is calling'. Sona is her name in 'Niram'. Since it was a time when mobile phones were not common, only Kunchacko had an Ericsson phone.

This is how Shalini and Ajith had their conversations even though Thala never visited her in the set. With time, Niram's director Kamal got suspicious and Kunchacko had to admit what was happening.

The following day, Kamal teased Shalini and made her blush. Actor Kunchacko shared this sweet memory in a recent interview.
