On the television game show that he is hosting, Venkat Prabhu shared an exciting bit of news about how Vijay was so impressed with Mankatha. After seeing this Ajith starrer, Vijay was happy as a fan with the entertainment that the movie offered. He called Venkat Prabhu and invited him over to his house. Vijay’s wife cooked and served dinner to Venkat and the couple’s hospitality bowled over the director.
When asked if he would direct a mass film such as Mankatha for Vijay as well, Venkat said in typical Vijay style “I am waiting” and sent the entire audience into frenzy mode.
