Extracting time from the busy schedules of Azhagiya Tamil Magan, Vijay found himself distributing cows to the needy in Madurai recently. Yes you heard it right; the actor gave away 9 cows in an event to celebrate the success of Pokkiri organized by his fan association in Madurai.
The event was conducted in the Cine Priya theatre in Madurai and was attended by Police Commissioner Kumaravel, distributors council head Anbuchezhiyan, and Durai - M.K. Azhagiri's son.The cow donation was preceded by the 'Kopooja' ritual performed by sanyasis.
Fans from the nearby villages gathered after news about Vijay's arrival spread. Vijay, in his speech stated that he has been doing numerous social welfare activities and donating cows is first of its kind. It is fulfilling, he added. I would have loved to visit all the theatres around Madurai that play Pokkiri, but had to visit Aruppukottai where my fans have arranged for free land distribution to the poor, he revealed.
Vijay's visit to the theatre ended up in a stampede and police charged lathi to control the crowd.
On a lighter note, Vijay's son who has been admitted to a school recently entertains his friends by enacting Vijay's punch dialogue 'Naan oru thadava mudivu pannitta, anda mudiva ennaal kooda maatha mudiyadu' from Pokkiri. Chip off the old block, eh?
