Ajith, along with his wife Shalini and mother Mohini Mani, exercised their franchise at a Chennai Corporation School on Kuppam Beach Road.
Fans thronged in large numbers to have a glimpse of the ‘thala’ and tense moments prevailed outside the booth. When Ajith went inside the polling station, officials, instead of placing the indelible ink on his left index finger, inked his middle finger.
So, when media persons asked Ajith to show his inked finger, he showed all five. This immediately caught the attention of his fans, who came out memes in English and Tamil praising the act of Ajith.
Vijay, T Rajendhar and others too cast their votes today. At such celebrity booths, fans and media persons were present in huge numbers. Police personnel were posted in additional numbers in those stations.
