Ajith.PR Handout

Tamil actor Ajith celebrated his 47th birthday on Tuesday, May 1. His legion of fans and celebrities wished the actor using multiple hashtags on Twitter.

Birthday wishes started pouring in for the actor since midnight. Several fans even cut cake to mark the occasion and posted pictures of the celebrations on social media. Not just film personalities, but politicians like Tamil Nadu deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam also wished the actor on Twitter.

Cutting across language barriers, Kannada star Kiccha Sudeep and Malayalam superstar Mohanlal wished the actor.

Coming to Kollywood celebrities, many spoke about their meeting with Ajith and how the actor inspires them through his hard work.

However, Ajith, as always, kept himself out of the public celebration. To cash in on the craze, Sun TV premiered his last year biggie, Vivegam.

Here, we bring you the tweets posted by celebrities wishing Ajith on his special day:
