'Powerstar is our ultimate source of entertainment' - Vijay - Event Story

Feb 12, 2013

The venue at Devi Cineplex was set to host a high profile event and the red carpet was rolled out to welcome some of Tamil cinema's big-wigs.

As the guests started to trickle in and take their seats, the stage was filled with dancers from Raghava Lawrence's charity trust and they delivered an inspiring performance despite their physical shortcomings. This was followed by a song being performed from the film.

Apart from the event's cheif guest, Vijay, the other members in attendance were K.S. Ravikumar, RB Choudhary, Abhirami Ramanathan, Thanu, KV Anand, Vikraman, Seenu Ramasamy, Elred Kumar among others. Also present were the crew and cast of Onbathule Guru, including Powerstar Sreenivasan who appears for a special song. The notable absentee though was Vinay Rai.

SA Chandrasekhar delivered the opening address and said that after 20 years of service to Vijay as his manager, PT Selvakumar grew to become a part of his family. He recalled how Selvakumar would act swiftly when any press carried falsified or negative news on Vijay. While the rest of the esteemed guests took turns to wish the team the best, RB Choudhary announced that he will make a film with Vijay under his banner once Thalaivaa is done.

The cast members spoke of their amazement of how soon Selvakumar wrapped up the project. Premgi said that he was happy to have a duet with Sona, but sad that he couldnt be a part of Powerstar's song. Even the film's music director K joined the bandwagon and passed a cheeky comment on Powerstar. The young music director also confessed that this was an opportunity for him to do an all out commercial album.

Powerstar Sreenivasan received a rousing ovation as he rose to speak and said that he agreed to do the cameo only because Selvakumar was Vijay's manager. He also christened Vijay as his 'Illayathambi'.

Vijay took to the podium amidst chants of "thalaivaa" and recalled how Selvakumar stood like a pillar of strength during the good times and especially the bad times. Even Vijay couldnt resist acknowledging Powerstar's presence. He said that on the sets of Thalaivaa, in the company of Santhanam, Powerstar's antics were the ultimate source of entertainment. He too wished the team well and proceeded to unveil the audio.

Despite some crowd control issues early on, the evening was nothing short of grand with the sheer presence of industry heavyweights.
