Ajith has got a huge 78% of votes by Bollywoodlife readers. Akshay Kumar comes distant second by earning only 14.96% of votes followed by George Clooney (3.92%) Aamir Khan (2.06%) and Milind Soman (0.92%).

The salt-and-pepper look was made famous by George Clooney himself in Hollywood. But in Indian films, it is Ajith Kumar, who made it popular. He first sported the look in blockbuster "Mankatha" and it became a strong style statement.

In Bollywood, actor Akshay Kumar is set to flaunt the salt and pepper look in "Brothers" and his style has already become the talk of the town. Even Aamir Khan will be sporting the look in his next film AK's "Dangal." Milind Soman has earlier scorched the runway with the salt and pepper look. 

The result has made Ajith's fans happy. This win will be special for them as some of the big names from Bollywood were in the race.

Meanwhile, Ajith, who has become a proud father of a baby boy, is yet to begin his next movie after "Yennai Arindhaal". The actor will be joining hands again with Siruthai Siva for the film produced by AM Rathnam.
