DHANUSH RECEIVES IT ON BEHALF OF RAJINI
The 5th Annual Vijay Awards witnessed coming together of the most eminent personalities of Tamil film industry. What surprised the most were the unexpected arrivals like Sun Pictures Hans raj Saxena and many more celebrities, who took a break from shooting and made their way to Nehru Indoor Stadium. Vijay Awards have come a long way since the first ceremony that took off grandiosely before 5 years. The highlight of this event was the jury members recognizing the need to honor special achievements that don’t usually fit into the fixed categories like ‘Best find of the Year 2010’. Winners of National awards were also honored during this occasion.

‘I am really thankful to the people, who have accepted me as an actor and I also feel it’s the greatest honor than any other awards’ said Dhanush. Filmmaker Vetri Maaran, editor Kishore, actor Jayabalan, poet Vairamuthu, Saranya Ponvannan, Thambi Ramaiah and choreographer Dinesh were felicitated.

Double cheers for Superstar Rajnikanth fans as he won a couple of awards – Best Villain and Favorite Hero for Endhiran.

Vairamuthu was honored with ‘Best Lyricist Award’ for Thenmerku Paruvakaatru. While receiving the awards, he didn’t miss to speak about the bleak scenario of present trend of songs. ‘Earlier, songs were meant to relish the essence of lyrics, but today it is used more for dance and beats.’
