“Due to the incidents that happened during the Bigil event (during which some fans were injured) and the safety measures followed (due to the coronavirus spread), we had to do a private event. I am sorry, and thank you as always,” he said.
He said, “Vijay Sethupathi has now become a person who cannot be ignored. I went and asked him myself, and he shut me down replying, ‘it’s because I like you very much.’ Vijay Sethupathi doesn’t just share my name, but has also given space for me in his heart.”
Praising director Lokesh Kanagaraj, Vijay sad, “He used to work in a bank and do short films in his free time, and then suddenly came up with such a complicated film like Maanagaram.
But it took me time to adapt to his working style. When ‘Master’ happened, I realised he didn’t even distribute scene papers during the shoot and actually got vexed and thought I’ll go home! But thankfully, it all worked out. He doesn’t just have a plan, but a ‘Master’ plan. Smart work meets hard work: that’s Lokesh for you.”
He added: “Shanthanu, you’re always in my prayer. Malavika has a beautiful face which will work with the Tamil audience. If she learns Tamil, she will grow up to be one of the leading heroines in Kollywood. Andrea always puts in a lot of thought while picking her films and my humble request to her is to do more Tamil films.”
Talking about the recent Income Tax raids, he said, “I would want my old life back. It was peaceful…without any raid.” In his message to haters, he said, “Kill them with your success, bury them with your smile. Sometimes, if we have to stay true, we have to be silent.”
