Vijay had arranged for a party to celebrate the completion of his portions in the Shankar directed Nanban. This party was held at a posh hotel in Chennai in which the entire crew members of Nanban participated.
And a surprise visitor at this party was Mankatha’s director Venkat Prabhu. Vijay was reported to have told Venkat that Mankatha’s trailer was so impressive and also put in a word to director Shankar to watch the film.
Venkat Prabhu and Shankar also discussed Vijay’s forthcoming release Velayutham during this event and all three were lavish in their praises for the other. There was huge expectation when Venkat arrived at the venue that Ajith would also grace the occasion as he is Vijay’s close friend. But the star could not make it as he was tied up in Billa 2 shooting.
