Ilaya Thalapathi’s birthday wish

The actor is facing a splendid time in his career now, what with the big names in the industry roping him in. On the political front too, the leader he supported is wielding power. All is going as planned and tomorrow when he celebrates his birthday what will be on the top spot in Vijay’s mind?
Here is what. Vijay, reports reveal, has requested his fans to celebrate his birthday tomorrow helping the poor and the needy in the society. The actor has been in the news many times earlier too for the efforts that he takes for the underprivileged in the society.
There are reports that all the babies born tomorrow at the Govt. Children Hospital in Egmore will receive a gold ring for their little finger. Incidentally this happens to be the same place where the star was born more than 37 years back on the same day. It is not very clear who will sponsor the gifts for the newborns though.
Some birdies also reveal that Vijay will lunch with the children in an orphanage tomorrow. It is good to know that the stars are able to do their bit for the underprivileged and the orphaned on their special days.
Great going ‘Ilaya Thalapathi,’ we hope many follow your footsteps!

VIJAY plays a cop role in 'Paglavan'

Looks like the Seeman – Vijay duo is keen on starting ‘Pagalavan’ right after Vijay finishes up with ‘Nanban,’ a multi-starrer under Shankar’s direction.
We had earlier told you the script consisted of a doctor Vijay, who plays the role of Pugazhendi and serves the poor in a village and then fights a mafia who deals with expired medicines.
But now, Seeman has brought about certain changes in ‘Pagalavan’s script, making it a whole-new-package altogether!
This new aspect will show a young Vijay fighting for a cause, against the privatization of certain sectors by the Government. ‘Pagalavan’ will see a rough-tough war between Vijay who is a doctor and a police officer.  And during these fights, Vijay realizes he can do better for the common man if he is a part of the police force.
He then studies IPS, rises to power as a police official in the society and puts an end to the mafia who is dealing with expired medicines.
So yes, Vijay dons the avatar of a doctor and later a police officer in ‘Pagalavan.’ We must remember that Vijay’s earlier movie where he played a cop - ‘Pokkiri’ was a blockbuster.

Nanban Latest News

Vijay is currently busy shooting for Nanban in Chennai. Along with Vijay Jiiva and Ileana are also taking part in the shooting. Nanban team is expected to shoot in Chennai city for another week.
Once the shooting is over Director Shankar is planning to shoot the songs next and the entire Nanban unit will fly to Spain to shoot the songs in some of the country’s hot spots.
Shankar has modified the script to suit Tamil sensibilities, so those who have already seen 3 Idiots will find a few surprises. Nanban is slotted for a Diwali release and it is hoped that work will be wrapped up by then.
As per sources Vijay’s performance in Nanban film is simply superb as he has slipped into his character completely. Also, he is looking fitter and fresher than ever.

Vijay is the reason for the change - seemaan

Director Seeman has said that Vijay is the reason for the change in government in Tamil Nadu. The fiery director has said that it was Vijay who has helped in overthrowing the DMK government for the atrocities and corruption they had committed. Seeman stated that though Vijay did not campaign for the AIADMK in person, he ensured that his father SA Chandrasekar and his fans worked for the AIADMK’s victory.
It may be noted here that Vijay had extended his support for the party during the elections and later met the AIADMK chief J Jayalalitha at her residence to congratulate on her astounding victory.

Velayutham songs will rocks on JULY 5

This is great tidings for all Ilaya Thalapathi fans out there. For those who were quite worried about the constant delay in ‘Velayudham’ music release here we have for you the music release date.

Reliable sources close to the unit have confirmed that ‘Velayudham’s music will hit stands on July 5.

The music director of the film is Vijay Antony, and if you remember, the past Vijay-Vijay Antony combo has worked wonders as far as the music goes! The previous time the two came together was for ‘Vettaikkaran’ and every single song in this film was a huge hit among youth as well as children!

‘Velayudham’ music disc will have a total of seven songs all inclusive of melody, “kuthu,” as well as an intro song for the hero – Vijay.

Vijay Antony had revealed that the music for this album has come out really well. The expectations among the fans are sky high already, and they are confident that their icon will not let them down this time too.

We had already informed you that the intro song of Vijay was choreographed for a whooping 2 crore rupees! This particular song has been shot with the Thirumoorthi Hills as the back drop. Ashok Raj is the choreographer; he is the same guy who has choreographed many intro songs for Vijay. We guess the Ilaya Thalapathi believes Ashok to be his lucky charm!

The film deals with an action, superhero subject with Vijay helming the show. We will also get to see Genelia and Hansika Motwani as his heroines. Saranya Mohan plays his sister in the film.

Vijay’s new confusion

It’s a well-known fact that Vijay is close on the heels of completing his 52nd movie Velayudham which is directed by Jeyam Raja. Though it may take few more months for the actor to wrap up Shankar’s Nanban, he had already okayed Seeman’s script that is tentatively titled as Pagalavan with the plans of commencing the project later.
But the latest report is that director Perarasu, who had earlier churned out blockbuster movies like Thirupachi and Sivakasi, has approached Vijay. It is worth mentioning that both of them were supposed to work together again, but didn't happen due to the prior commitments of Vijay.
Closer sources reveal that Vijay is very much impressed with Perarasu's storyline and is keen on working with him again. However, the star seems to be confused over deciding his next project between Seeman and Perasu.

Vijay's pagalavan updates

There is a buzz doing its rounds in the Kollywood town that director Seeman will soon direct ‘Ilaya Thalapathi’ Vijay. The film will be titled ‘Pagalavan.’ Sources reveal that the storyline for this film was created almost a year back. But Seeman was jailed for his comments on the Srilankan Tamils following which the project was shelved.
 But the director is out now and seems to be concentrating hard of assembling the star cast and the technical crew for ‘Pagalavan.’ Now it also seems that Bhavana will be acting opposite Vijay in this film. This is the first time Bhavana will be seen opposite Vijay. She has already worked with Seeman in ‘Vaazhthukal,’ so this will be the actress’ second project with the director.
Sources also reveal that ‘Pagalavan’ is a double heroine subject. The other heroine’s role is touted to go the Hansika Motwani, who will also be seen in ‘Velayudham’ with Vijay. ‘Ilaya Thalapathi,’ is at the moment busy with his final schedule of ‘Velayudham.’ He is simultaneously acting in Shankar’s ‘Nanban.’ The actor will join the ‘Pagalavan’ team once he completes these two films.

The protagonist of the film, Vijay, brought a cake that bore the wordings, ‘settai sadhuvuku pirandha naal vazhthukal.’ Meaning, we wish a happy birthday to our ‘innocent’ prankster. Raja celebrated his birthday in the presence of Ilaya Thalapathi Vijay, cameraman Priyan and the crew of ‘Velayudham.’
We must remember that it was Ilaya Thalapathi who was behind the birthday surprises of other members of the film including Hansika, Saranya Mohan and cameraman Priyan.
While there are stars who throw tantrums at the sets, Vijay’s actions must be appreciated, as he is one of the top heroes in Kollywood today. Way to go Vijay! We wish Jayam Raja on his birthday and hope that the movie works wonders for him, adding yet another feather to his cap.
