Their love affair reportedly started when Ajith accidentally cut Shalini's hand during the shooting of an action sequence and became her caretaker for the rest of the shoot. It is said that Shalini was immensely impressed by his gesture, and that's how love between the two blossomed. The couple married in a grand ceremony in 2000. The wedding was a star-studded affair as the two were popular faces in Tamil cinema at that time and Shalini has been in the film industry since she was 3.

After eight years of marriage, they were blessed with a baby girl, whom they named Anoushka. In 2015, they gave birth to their second child, a son, Aadvik.
