Several celebrities from South Indian film industry have already paid a visit to Anil Kapoor's house to offer their condolences on the untimely death of veteran actress Sridevi who has worked in done movies in multiple languages. Now, the latest buzz is that Tamil actor Ajith will be in Mumbai to meet her family.

Ajith shared a cordial relationship with Sridevi's family. In fact, the actor, who is fondly known as Thala by his fans is a self-proclaimed fan of the veteran actress. As a result, the Mankatha star had agreed to do a cameo in the Tamil version of her comeback movie, English Vinglish (Aangilam Vaangilam), a few years ago.

The most surprising part of the story was that he did not take a single penny to work with Sridevi as he felt that it was a sort of dream coming true for him to share screen space with her, Tamil media reports.

Ever since they worked together, Ajith had been in regular touch with her family.
