A photo of Tamil actor Ajith Kumar standing next to a woman at Heathrow airport in London is going viral on social media. The reason? Apparently, the actor who was on his way to Chennai assisted a young mother with her luggage when he learned that she was travelling alone.

The husband of the woman said in a social media post: "My wife was travelling from Glasgow to Chennai and was travelling alone with our 10-month-old baby. She had a chance to meet Ajithkumar at London's Heathrow airport today. She was travelling with a cabin suitcase and a baby bag. This man here not only posed for a photograph but he was a superhuman to carry our baby bag from there until flight, understanding my wife came alone."

"When my wife resisted, he replied, 'It is ok. I have two kids. So I know how it feels.' He carried it all the way along with his cabin suitcase into the flight and he gave it to the cabin crew and ensured that the bag has been placed under my wife's seat," he added.

He added that another person who was travelling with Ajithkumar had volunteered to take the baggage but the superstar insisted that he carried the bag himself. He also posted that a personality like Ajithkumar doing such a thing has floored him.
