Thala Ajith has several hobbies such as racing, photography, aeromodelling and rifle shooting. Recently, visited the Chennai Rifle Club which is situated at the Police Commissioners office in Vepery. Soon, fans came to know about Ajith's presence and thronged to the club to meet him and catch a glimpse of the actor. Ajith was spotted in a new look. He seems to be sporting a crew cut which might get featured in his upcoming film Valimai. Ajith obliged and posed for pictures with the officials, fans and staff at the Rifle Club. The photos went viral on social media.
Ajith requested his fans to wait for Valimai update and wrote, "Greetings to my fans and people who have always shown love to me and my films. In the last few days, few people claiming to be my fans have been asking for Valimai update in cricket stadiums, political events and other public venues, I am deeply disappointed with this behaviour. As announced earlier updates about the film will come when the time is right. I am in talks with the producers to announce the updates. Please be patient until then. Cinema is entertainment for you, but it’s a profession for me. I request my fans to be patient and conduct themselves decently in the public domain. I hope people who love me will behave accordingly."
