Vijay and Ajith started their careers at
around the same time and went on to achieve
superstardom. They are both lucky to have
a passionate fan following that literally
worships the ground they walk on. Their fans
swear by their favorite hero and when it comes
to discussing which actor is superior they
have been known to come to blows over the
issue in a manner that is reminiscent of the
fights between the Saivites and Vaishnavites
in an earlier age.
The stars in question themselves are former
rivals turned friends. And with Ajith’s
Mankatha and Vijay’s Velayudham due
to release in August, it looks like the titans
will clash again. They themselves share a
warm relationship now and have a friendly
rivalry going on. But their fans are another
matter, and will be passionately awaiting
the release of their favorite star’s
film and will go all out to settle the question
of supremacy. In honor of the momentous clash
to be, let us look at films of Ajith and Vijay
