announced! Vijay’s father offers
prayers at temples!!
awaited Ilayathalapathi’s Pokiri was
officially launched yesterday in Chennai.
At the simple event, the lead pair of Vijay,
Asin and Prabhudeva were at their relaxed
best. Asin was her charming self in a stunning
pair of jeans and light colored tops. Vijay
looked every bit the dashing hero while Prabudeva
himself looked as fresh as he was a decade
ago. May be the success of his Telugu ventures
had added glitter to his eyes.
A lot is riding on the slender shoulders
of Vijay. After the lukewarm response
to Aadhi, which was a remake of
the Telugu hit Athanukode, everyone
went about guessing that Vijay would
no more do remakes. But, as Puli
and Murasu did not take off, he
thought it fit to get back to good
films irrespective of whether they
are remakes or not. So, Pokiri was
chosen by him and he invited Prabudeva
to be the director.
Vijay’s father SAC conducted
special puja at the Sri Arunachaleswarar
Temple in Tiruvannamalai. On Saturday
night, which was the full moon day,
which is an auspicious occasion for
the presiding deity there, he spent
a full hour before the Lord seeking
his blessings. He also prayed at the
Sacred Church at Velankanni. We hope
that a father’s prayers for
his son are answered. Good luck, Vijay!
