Actor Vijay has had a great year with his Kaavalan bringing him back in the game. He followed it with the Deepavali release Velayudham that stood out as his biggest releases till date. The movie enjoyed great success in the neighboring state Kerala too and presented fans with a good commercial entertainer for the holiday season.
Soon after the actor moved on to shoot for his Thuppakki flick under the direction of AR Murugadoss alongside completing his Nanban shoots for Shankar. The movie Thuppakki did suffer some initial setbacks, with ARM demanding a hefty 12 crore remuneration resulting in Vijay’s dad SA Chandrasekhar (SAC) backing out of production. After settling all matters, the movie went on floors on December 5th in Mumbai. It has now come to a brief halt with the unit heading for a much needed New Year break. Vijay disclosed the news saying, “It’s been a jam packed December schedule. I so want to visit my family back in Chennai and will be taking a 2 day break from the shoots.” The actor further added, “I will soon join Murugadoss at the Thuppakki sets from January 2nd itself.”
Vijay here’s wishing you a great New Year 2012 !
