Chennai, these days, is under a pleasant spell of weather which makes people look up to their calendar to check what time of the year they are in. Adding to this spell of delight, the contest winners of behindwoods.com had one more reason to rejoice - their meeting with Cheeyan Vikram.

It was a pleasant afternoon in Chennai and the winners were eagerly waiting for their Raavanan aka Veeraiya to arrive. Not making his fans wait for long hours, Vikram arrived sooner. He was dapper in a pair of jeans and a black round neck T shirt and he accessorized them perfectly with beads round his neck. However, it was not his attire or looks that impressed the gathering but his joie de vivre was the reason that floored them.

Accepting the huge garland from team Behindwoods with a smile bigger and fresher than the garland itself, Vikram was ready to interact with his fans right from the word go. He began the session with a jocular comment – “you can ask me anything but Raavanan, Mani Ratnam, Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek, Priya Mani and Prithviraj.” When the audience was reeling under this comment trying to assimilate his words, he followed it with quick live wire comment – “I was just kidding” - much to everyone’s relief.

He braced all kinds of queries thrown at him with an honest demeanor that belied his stardom. The questions ranged from his career to favorite directors to his future projects. An elderly woman impressed the Raavanan himself when she wanted to know if he had used a body double in the climax scene when she said, “enakke bak bak nnu irundadu anda scene paakumpodu. Neenga eppadi pannineenga?” Vikram was evidently impressed by the lady’s usage of words, obviously from Raavanan, and replied using her words that he did not use a body double but all the same was tensed during those shots.

Another fan wanted to know who is the one actress that he is eager to pair with, now that he has acted with the most beautiful woman (implying Aishwarya Rai). “Angeline Jolie,” came the quick reply.

According to him, Chappani of 16 Vayadinile is one character he would like to essay. To another fan who questioned about Vikram’s competitor whether it was Suriya or Kamal or Vijay, he said that it was him who he is competing with and no one else.

When the discussions veered to masala films and some of his fans expressed their desire that he should not feature in such movies, Vikram politely said that he would also do them but bring in his own uniqueness to such films.

The session proceeded with many more such questions and the fans showered their plaudits on the star for his remarkable performance in Raavanan. Finally, it was the photograph and the autograph session which the National Award winner obliged with an ever smiling face.

Like all good things must come to end, the afternoon also culminated but with lovely memories to take home to which his fans are sure to cherish for a long while.

Thank You Vikram!
