Thalapathy Vijay’s advice that changed Arun Vijay’s life
Arun Vijay has been a hard working actor, who had never given up his passion for acting despites a very low profile reception for years. However, he made a strong bouncing comeback with the film ‘Yennai Arindhaal’, where he played negative role opposite Ajith Kumar. Apparently, this was considered as his best ever stroke. Following this, he continued to make a big time with movies like Kuttram 23 and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. While his Thadam is hitting screens in couple of days (March 1), the actor opens upon an unforgettable advice from Thalapathy Vijay that changed his life forever.
“There was a time, where I completely felt low with my movies not faring well. So myself and father decided to go for production of movies. Initially, we wanted to produce a film with Vijay sir in lead role. So I called up his assistant and wanted to check about his availability for the meeting. Instantly, I got a reply to meet him by evening and had reached there on time. I was completely spellbound over the advice he gave me. He told, “Why did you make such a decision? You’re such a good performer, dancer and fighter. Please don’t give up! Wait for the right time. Yes, we will work about your production plans, but don’t divert yourself and am confident that you’ll definitely make it big. You are a better fight than me.” As he told me this, it was reflecting in my mind as I drove the car back home and told my family and father that I am not quitting. It was such a great push of motivation and encouragement from a big star like Vijay, who was inspiring.”
