Career[edit | edit source]

Ajmal's debut film was Pranayakalam, opposite Vimala Raman. This was followed by the Tamil film Anjathe, directed by Myshkin, in which he played an angry young man.[2] The film became a high critical as well as commercial success, with Ajmal receiving several awards for his performance.[5] He next starred in the Malayalam film Madambi alongside Mohanlal. It remains his only hit in Malayalam.[6] He also acted in an international production De Nova, which went unnoticed. The anti-hero character, Vasanthan Perumal, he portrayed in the 2011 Tamil movie Ko earned him a lot of appreciation.

He also acted in the Telugu film Prabhajanam in which he played the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.[6] Apart from Prabhajanam he also did two more Telugu films Tanu Monne Vellipoyindi and Chaitanyam.[6] In Tamil he acted in Vetri Selvan and Ula in which he played a rockstar and in Malayalam he has finished V. K. Prakash's Mazhaneerthullikal which is delayed.[9]
