The couple was not happy to read about their affair and hence, decided to make their relationship official. Just a year after the release of "Amarakalam", the couple tied the knot.

Ajith and Shalini had two weddings: one as per the Hindu Brahmin custom and the other as per the Protest Christian customs. The cross religion marriage was not opposed by their families as their parents happily approved their relationship.

After the marriage, Shalini took a back seat from acting before completing two commited projects. She decided to take care of their family. The couple became proud parents of a girl, Anoushka, in 2008 and their second baby, Aadhvik, was born in March 2015.

On the professional front, Ajith is yet to start his next movie after "Yennai Arindhaal" with Gautham Menon. The actor will soon be beginning a movie, which is currently called as "Thala 56", with Siruthai Siva. The project was launched on 9 April.

The forthcoming movie is produced by AM Rathnam. Shruti Haasan plays the female lead's role. Santhanam and Bollywood actor Kabir Singh are also part of the starcast.
