Ajith Kumar's fans are excited as the actor's hit movie "Vedalam" will be premiered at 6 pm on Monday, Sep. 5. The Tamil movie will be aired on Jaya TV on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.

It is a common practice for TV channels to screen popular movies to increase their TRPs. Among many films that are being screened during this festival, it is "Vedalam" that has drawn people's attention.

In the past one week, Ajith's fans have consistently publicised the screening and created trends related to the topic on social networking sites. The fans now hope that "Vedalam" will garner good TRP ratings for Jaya TV.

The movie was one of the biggest box office hits of 2015. It was released on the occasion of Diwali last year and turned a hit despite Chennai and a few other regions being hit by massive floods.

"Vedalam" stars Shruthi Haasan as the female lead, while Lakshmi Menon plays Ajith's sister in the movie, which also featured Soori, Thambi Ramaiah, Ashwin, Rahul Dev, Avinash, Rajendran and others in supporting cast.

The film was written and directed by Siruthai Siva, and bankrolled by AM Rathnam. The movie had impressed youngsters as well as the family audience, which played a major role in its success at the box office.
