Shalini Ajith , also known simply as Shalini, is a South Indian film actress who debuted, at the age of three, in the Malayalam movie Ente Mamattikkuttiyammakku which was produced by Navodaya. She continued to appear in many films as a child actor. After a break of several years, she returned to the industry by appearing in the Malayalam movie Aniyathi Pravu which went on to become a superhit. Her last film Niram, was a blockbuster in Kerala.

In 1999, during the shoot of Saran\'s Amarkalam, Ajith began to date his co-star Shalini.

Ajith proposed to Shalini in June 1999, and following consultations with her family, she agreed. They were married in April 2000 in Chennai in a grand ceremony. As both were of different religions, Ajith being a Hindu Brahmin and Shalini being Protestant Christian, they were married together under the customs of both religions.

Initially Fazil was keen on casting a debutant in the lead female role, but Shalini inisted that she should also star in the Tamil version. The success of the film prompted the director to make another film with the lead pair in 2000, Kannukkul Nilavu, however the film became a box office failure despite positive reviews. Her next film was Amarkalam, Saran initially approached Shalini, who was studying at the time and she refused but after a three month pursuit, he finally got her to sign on as well.
