Shalini, the wife of Ajith Kumar, is turning a year older on 20 November as she celebrates her 36th birthday.

The fans of Ajith, who never lose an opportunity to celebrate any occasion related to their icon, have set a trend on Twitter with the hashtag #HappyBirthdayShaliniAjith.

They are tweeting her photos with Ajith and wishing the actress on her special day. Many are also requesting her to make her comeback to acting like Jyothika, who returned to acting this year with "36 Vayadhinile".

The celebration is not just restricted to online as the actor's fans in Madurai and a few other places are making it a memorable day by doing charity. However, it is expected to be a low-key day this time for the family as Thala is in bed rest following the shoulder and knee surgeries, which were performed last week.

Shalini started her acting career as a child artiste in Malayalam movie "Ente Amattikkuttiyammakku" and graduated as a heroine in "Aniyathipraavu". She fell in love with Ajith during the making of "Amarkalam" and they tied the knot in 2000.

Post-wedding, she stayed away from acting. The couple is blessed with two children (daughter Anoushka and son Aadvik).

Meanwhile, her husband's "Vedalam" has turned out to be a big hit at the box office. The Tamil film has made good business and the movie has already grossed over Rs 100 crore worldwide.
