Ajith's popularity in the online medium is turning out to be bigger than many top stars of South India again. He is leading the race to become South's Ultimate Superstar!
A poll conducted by Bollywoodlife has given an interesting insight about the South's Ultimate Superstar. Ajith has managed to create a lead over stars like Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Telugu stars Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan, Ravi Teja, Kannada actor Puneet Rajkumar and legends like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Mammootty and Mohanlal.
However, the final verdict might change as there is a stiff competition between Ajith and Vijay. The former has got just 1% more votes than the latter and it could be a close finish between them by the end of the polls.
The surprising part of the story is that stars like Pawan Kalyan (13.2%), Mahesh Babu (7.79%), Rajinikanth (2.91%) Puneet Rajkumar (2.44%), Kamal Haasan (0.59%), Mammootty (0.41%), Mohanlal (0.31%) and Ravi Teja (0.21%) are nowhere near the top two positions as Ajith (36.58%) and Vijay (35.56) are leading the race.
One among them is likely to win South's Ultimate Superstar title. However, it also appears like the Telugu audience participation was less as Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu are the heartthrobs of Tollywood audience just like Vijay and Ajith.
People might be surprised to see stars like Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan take a backseat while the younger stars shine with many more votes. But the fact remains that the online medium is ruled by youths and hence present-day youth icons get better votes than the aging stars.
