Ajiths Role Model

Despite being a highly successful achiever, Ajith continues to be a humble simpleton - this is why he is the 'Thala'. While he is the inspiration to many, there is one person that Thala points finger to and calls his mentor and role model in aero modelling and photography. Popularly known as 'Helicam' Aravind, the technician known for his adept knowledge on helicam has been buddies with Ajith ever since Thala's 'Dheena' days.

Reminiscing his long journey, Aravind opens up "I was the cinematographer for 'Sivelaperi Pandi', after which I started working on ad films. After a while, when I started touring foreign countries, I stumbled upon the concept of helicam, which influenced me deeply. Until then, when any scene had to be shot from a considerable height, a jimmy jib had to be used; but dismantling the assembly post shoot is cumbersome. The other alternative was the expensive choice of hiring a helicopter. But helicam - remote controlled helicopter fitted with specialised camera - seemed to be an efficient option. So I set out procuring the materials to make my own helicam and also succeeded in marking my mark as a proficient helicam cinematographer."

Recalling his nostalgic memories with Ajith in his early days of aero modelling, Aravind quips "Like how school kids run out to play cricket on every holiday, I and Ajith used to rush to Achcharapakkam runway soon after the shooting schedule got over, for aero modelling. Those were fun days, as Ajith had just begun pursuing his passion. Now in 'Arrambam' I shot a risky shot on a running train. Ajith acted in a fight sequence atop a running train in Odisha. On seeing the rushes of the sequence, Ajith was moved that all his efforts have come to light in camera. Similarly, Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Mohanlal were in awe with the sequence I shot for director Nesan's 'Jilla' in the set erected for the film. I shot a continuous sequence canning the entire house, entering the helicam through a window and recording every room in the house" he concluded.
