Vijay has been going around the State in his effort to prop up the box-office collections and ticket-sales of his latest release Nanban. The film, which has Jiiva and Srikanth as his co-stars and directed by Shankar, has been doing average business all over the State. Touted initially as a record-breaking film, the film’s collections started dipping sharply after the initial couple of weeks.
Vijay was in Madurai the other day and visited the cinema halls screening the film. He also found time to address his fans. Vijay took part at a function held at a hotel in Madurai’s Kalavasal and also interacted with a group of mentally challenged children from Shine School in K.K. Nagar. One of the students presented Vijay a drawing created by him.
Speaking to newspersons later, Vijay said at the outset that he won’t be commenting about any political issues and that it’d only be about films. Talking about multi-starrer films, he said that “I don’t have any hesitation in starring along side other heroes if I get a script as powerful as Nanban. I believe that the ‘script’ is the actual hero of a film. We (actors) only go by what the script says.
“I have a good rapport with Suriya…I won’t have any problems in acting with him together….we had already done Friends more than a decade back. If I get a good script, I’d consider starring with him again…at present, though, I’m focusing on Murugadoss’ Thupppaki; I’m sure it’d do well at the box-office,” concluded Vijay.
