Fans of actor Ajith Kumar took to Twitter to celebrate their hero's participation in the 45th Tamil Nadu State Shooting Championship by trending the hashtag #THALAsActionAtRifleShooting on a national level. 

For the uninitiated. Ajith's pursuits outside cinema include racing and a recent interest in rifle shooting is well known. Now, the actor has taken part in the 10-metre air pistol and 50-metre free pistol competition in the State Shooting Championship, which is being held in Coimbatore. Ajith has reportedly qualified for the next round in the 10 m Air pistol event.

The police apparently had a difficult time managing the fans, who thronged the two entrances of the Police Recruits School on Avinashi Road. About 850 participants from various districts are competing in the event.

Pictures of the actor from the event are being passionately shared by fans on social media.

A couple of months ago, similar photos of the actor rehearsing with a rifle were also circulated. Ajith's passion for rifle shooting apparently began during his stint as a NCC cadet in his school (Asan Memorial) days.

Incidentally, Ajith was recently appointed as a Helicopter Test Pilot and UAV System Adviser by The Madras Institute of Technology for its team Dhaksha, which participated in an international Unarmed Aerial Vehicle launch competition earlier this year, to huge acclaim from his fans. The action, in addition is a keen still-photographer.

Ajith Kumar, meanwhile, is is awaiting the release of his next film, Ner Konda Paarvai, on Augusr 8.
