Why is Ajith not backing Jayalalithaa?

It’s all got to do with Mankatha

Is Ajith distancing himself from J Jayalalithaa? Well, we all know that Ajith was bonding big time with the AIADMK chief, when she was out of power. In fact, he had openly displayed his closeness to the leader and was also seen seeking her blessings at public functions.

Political observers in Tamil Nadu are surprised that ‘Thala’ has not visited the ‘Puratchi Thalaivi’ even once or wished her on public platforms following her party’s landslide victory at the Assembly elections and her becoming the new Chief Minister. Why? Finally, the question was put forth to Ajith at a press meet recently, and the star replied that if he met her now it would give rise to unnecessary rumours that he did so to facilitate the release of Mankatha – a movie produced by her arch rival M Karunanidhi’s grandson Dayanidhi Alagiri’s Cloud Nine Movies. Ajith said he did not want this to happen. It seems Ajith’s plan has backfired and his absence has only created more controversy.
