Ajith and Vijay are among the big names in Kollywood who are fondly celebrated as Thala and Thalapathy by their loyal fans.
The actors worked together in 'Rajavin Parvayile', a movie released in 1995 before they achieve greater heights in the movie industry. But that's the only movie the actors have acted together despite being in the industry for decades.
Both the stars are frequently portrayed as rivals by the media and their fans who go to great lengths to prove their favorite hero is better than the other. Even though misunderstandings frequently occur between their fans, both Vijay and Ajith have remained as good friends to date.
Ormax Media, a well-known media research agency that tracks and reports 'Top Ten" lists in Bollywood, has been doing their work down South as well.
According to Ormax Media, the top ten male stars in the Tamil cinema are as stated below:
7) Kamal Haasan
10) Jayam Ravi
The list places Vijay as the top star of Kollywood and Ajith falls second. Even Superstar Rajinikanth comes in fourth place behind Vijay, Ajith, and Suriya. They released the list in June 2020.
According to their Twitter bio, Ormax Media is 'India's only specialised media consulting firm. Pioneers in tracking, testing and forecasting-based consulting for films, television, OTT and more.'
