About Thala Ajith he stated, “I don’t come from a filmy background. I am thankful to my friends. When I got an opportunity to work with Ajith sir, I was very happy. He said that he, too, entered the industry like me, as a young guy, with no background. He gave me a lot of hope and positivity. He told me that I will come up in the industry. And that sort of gave me the push that I should never give up on the industry or my career.”
He further added that it was his best friend Simbu who introduced him into the film industry. “Simbu and I were childhood friends. I used to accompany him to shoots. I also watched him edit and compose music. I was drawn to it and was inspired by him. Soon I began taking acting and dance classes. Eventually, I began looking for acting opportunities. Simbu had cast me in a friend role in Vallavan. I was again looking for opportunities,” said Mahat.
