Recently there were protests staged outside the Devi Theater from agitated Ilayathalapathy fans. A total of 2000 ardent Vijay fans signed a letter as a request to screen the movie in either of the big halls Devi or Devi Paradise. The fact that Suriyas’ 7aam Arivu has bagged major theaters din’t make things any better for the dissatisfied Ilayathalapathy fans.
Even though the sparks are already publicly visible, the Velayudham and 7aam Arivu heroes themselves have no love lost between them. The leading Kollywood pair have been friends for a long time and infact Vijay even sent out good luck to his pal Suriya with a thumbs up – ‘All the best’. Vijay said, “Both of us (Vijay and Suriya) sincerely hope that both Velayudham and 7aum Arivu should become hits. My wishes to the unit members of both the movies.” It can be noted that Velayudham and 7aam Arivu will be two different genre movies with the former falling in the masala flick category and the latter proving to be a sci-fi thriller experience from the Red Giant banner .
Accepted that it’s all good between Vijay and Suriya, but we still want to know whom the fans think, will win this Diwali race? (Ok.. don’t break those soda bottles….no not the police station….Ayiayaaa paabi ! what was that slap for?)
