A youth icon of sorts, he is a contender for the superstar title in Tamil cinema. The shy and reserved actor Vijay was his usual self at the launch of the Tamil edition of Filmfare magazine in Chennai on Wednesday evening.
“We talk a lot during the interviews and when we read the same stuff on the magazine, it’s all the more interesting and thrilling,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Vijay.
As of now Vijay has more reasons to smile than one. His latest film Pokkiri has completed 100 days and was declared a super-hit, and with Prabhu Deva on the director’s seat, no doubt the dance sequences were the toughest part.
“I had no clue how Prabhu Deva was going to dance till the last moment. We didn’t even have a rehearsal. It was a straight take so I was a bit nervous but it came out well,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Vijay.
At a time when his rival Ajith is busy with Billa 2007, a remake of Rajnikanth’s Billa, so what would be Vijay’s choice for a remake?
“Well, there are many films I would like to remake like Nallavanukku Nallavan and Murattukaalai.
But for now, Vijay is waiting to see the superstar sizzle on screen in Sivaji.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am waiting for the release too- 1st day 1st show. I am going to be there with the crowd to watch the movie,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Vijay.
