We all knew that Ajith and Shalini fell in love with each other during the shoot of ‘Amarkalam’ directed by Saran. But, not many are aware of the fact that Shalini’s parents did not approve the relationship initially.
Hence, to contact Shalini without the knowledge of her parents, Ajith took the help of Malayalam actor Kunchacko Boban. This has now been revealed by Boban himself in a recent media interaction.
He said that while shooting for the Malayalam movie ‘Niram’, Shalini had kept her affair secret and only Kunchako was aware of the relationship between Ajith and her. He said that Ajith used to call to his mobile to avoid suspicion while talking to her.
When mobile phones were not very popular in those days, Kunchacko used to carry his Ericson mobile to the shooting set and Ajith and Shalini used it to interact with each other.
To avoid getting noticed by Shalini’s parents, whenever Ajith’s call came, Kunchacko used to say that Sona, AK-47 Calling. While Sona is the name of Shalini in the movie, AK is the abbreviation of Ajith Kumar.
