Karthi just couldn’t stop raving about Mankatha and Ajith’s role in it. The star said that no other star would have had the courage to undergo such a makeover, especially a character that required traits of villainy and sporting grey hair. Ajith doing a role that befits his age is really cool, said Karthi. It proves that the star is experimental and not image conscious, he added.
In Mankatha, Ajith donned the role of a 40-year-old corrupt police officer and sported a salt and pepper look that was the talk of the town.
