Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct a deviated nasal septum wherein one's nasal septum is straightened and re-positioned in the middle of the nose. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is a surgical treatment of sinusitis and nasal polyps, including bacterial, fungal, recurrent acute, and chronic sinus.

On the personal front, Ajith became a father for the second time recently, with his wife Shalini giving birth to a baby boy. Within hours, the boy was named ‘Kutty Thala’ by fans and started trending on social media.

Apart from being an actor, Ajith is well-known to be a racer and had taken up racing professionally in the past. He has previously undergone major back surgeries. He is expected to start working on his next yet-untitled Tamil project with Siva soon.

Ajith's last release "Yennai Arindhaal" has turned out to be a successful venture. Talks are on to resume work on a sequel.
