UTG calls t20, , Hero raises to t50, BTN calls t50, , UTG calls t30

I don’t mean to be rude but it’s been mentioned several times before not to post the results with your original question so as not to influence the advice/suggestions you are given. So pls avoid posting results along with your original query.
It’s too early in the tournament to be putting your entire stack on the line with AJ.
AJ suited or not, is dicey when there are so many players in the hand. I would have folded after that big re-raise by BTN.

Yeah don’t post results. In a $1 Stars tourney, this is fine. He had AK this time, but at these tourneys there are guys who will stack off with all Aces, any kind of flush draw, random kings, and often completely incomprehensible bluffs.
PLEASE DON’T DO THIS at even $5 tournies or if you have any reason to believe your opponent has a brain. Also raise more preflop.

I wouuld probably make it 100-120 pre flop , with one limper and stacks being this deep gonna go bigger with raises. Post flop, fold IMO. Again considering this is a 1 dollar tourney I am not too sure. But this early I am folding this without any specific reads.

Raise more pre… Its usually fine for a $1 donkament , as there are a lot of players who have absolutely no clue what they are doing. The only argument is , I think stacks are still toooo deep to stack off with TPGK kind of hand on such a draw heavy board.
