Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar and wife Shalini are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary on Friday.

Actor Ajith Kumar and wife Shalini’s alliance is no less than a fairytale romance. A filmmaker had seen 18-year old Shalini in Kadhalukku Mariyadhai and wanted to cast her along with Ajith for the actor’s 25th film. Finally, the star-crossed lovers met at the sets of 1999 film Amarkalam and that’s where it all began.

The two tied the knot with the consent of their families on April 24, 2000. Ajith and Shalini are blessed with two children, Anoushka and Aadvik. Shalini quit the acting profession and took command of the home front post-marriage.

Ajith spoke about Shalini being his support system. He said, “Shalini was an extremely successful actress herself. She’s been extremely supportive. It’s a very cliched thing to say that she’s my biggest critic, but to be very honest, she has given me the freedom to take my own decisions without trying to influence me or interfere in any way. I’m happy that I have a spouse who believes in me. But, yes, I let her share her doubts and I seek her opinion on what she feels. I value her opinion (sic).”

Today, on the occasion of Ajith and Shalini’s 20th wedding anniversary, here’s looking at some of their loveliest moments together.

Affair of the heart

Shalini remembers Ajith telling her at one of the premier events early on, that he didn’t like the curls of her hair. She initially didn’t like the comment but appreciated his honesty.
