Trisha speaks about Vijay in a recent interview:
Q: How is it working with Vijay for the fourth time together in “Kuruvi”?
A: Vijay is a good friend and working with him for the fourth time is great. We have a fantastic rapport and share a good comfort level on the sets.
Plus, he is extremely professional and a very sweet person. So that makes work even easier.
In fact, he has even picked the hero for his first movie. Vishal has expressed that if he directs a full-length movie, he wishes to cast Vijay as hero.
Vijay-Trisha starrer Kuruvi, directed by Dharani, started off on a tight schedule of shooting.
Huge sets were erected at the MGR Film City where a song sequence and some scenes were shot. Then the crew continued the shoot in Irungaattukottai. Another set was also put up at Sriperambudur.
Recent rains in the city postponed the shooting for two days. The call sheets of a group of models brought from Mumbai and Bangalore for the song sequence went waste due to the postponement. The models have been booked and paid in advance.
But the delay and the subsequent wastage does not seem to bother the crew and they are back in action.

The fans of Ajit and Vijay are fighting a no-hold war of words on the internet over Billa and ATM, but the two stars met up on Friday evening to watch the Ajit film at Chennai’s premiere preview theatre Four Frames.
Ajit and his beautiful wife Shalini were holding a private show of Billa on its release day for their close friends. The guest list included arch rival (made out by the media?), Vijay and his lovely wife Sangeetha, Surya and his brother Karthi, and few friends from other walks of life.
Ajit the perfect host that he is, made everybody comfortable, and saw to it that all his friends had a good time watching Billa, and Vijay the gentleman that he is, after the show went and hugged him.
In Kollywood there is a lot of professional rivalry but they do not carry it to their personal life. Ajit and Vijay may be bitter foes at work place but in real life they are good buddies like Rajni and Kamal.

The Ghilli team, currently shooting Kuruvi, is all set to take off to Malaysia.
For starters, Kuruvi is Vijay’s next film where he is paired with his lucky mascot Trisha. The film is directed by Dharani, the man behind commercial blockbusters like Dhil, Dhool and Ghilli. The film is produced by Udayanidhi, the son of M.K. Stalin.
The unit will be shooting in picturesque locations of Malaysia that have not yet been captured on film.
Almost the entire team that made Ghilli is working on Kuruvi including music director Vidayasagar who has given rocking numbers for Dharani’s films.
The ‘Appadi Podu’ number in Ghilli is still in the minds of Vijay fans and the composer promises that there will be an even more rocking number in Kuruvi.

Hi Behindwoods Team & CO
I’m a regular viewer of your website and enjoy it thoroughly from the latest news to the articles. Recently a few of my cousins who are big fans of vijay got a chance to meet him at his house in Chennai. As I’m in Sydney, Australia I was unable to be present and it was mentioned when they met Vijay that I was his big fan.
Me being an ardent fan of Vijay, I should have been there, but Ilayathalapathy responded by telling them to call me on my mobile phone and spent a few minutes talking to me. I was touched by this noble gesture as you do not normally expect such from one of the most prominent young heroes of Tamil cinema today. Even during the conversation, he enquired what I was studying and what my plans were for the future, he also mentioned that he was immersed in his Kuruvi project with Dharani and Trisha and that it was a fast paced action movie like Ghilli.
You mention noble deeds to charity by stars, but Ilayathalapthy today showed a humble deed that made the day of one of his millions of fans around the world.

The career graph of Nayanthara, the beautiful actress from Kerala, has been steadily climbing with plum assignments in her kitty. She began her Tamil innings in Aiyya with Sarathkumar and went on to do the role of Durga in Chandramukhi who wooed the Super star. Her ‘balalaika’ number in Sivaji has enabled her to capitalize her position in the industry very well.
Now, with Billa, expectations have reached an all time high and the stills of the film reveal a svelte and suave Nayan. She is on an enviable track now with projects like ‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’ with Dhanush and Sathyam with Vishal.
She has been carving a niche for herself in Tollywood too where she has been paired with popular actors like Nagarjuna and Ravi Teja to name a few. She was in the fray for the role of Vijay’s heroine in Kuruvi but missed it narrowly to Trisha. However her patience seems to have paid off as she has signed on the dotted line for an unnamed project to be directed by Prabhu Deva with Ilaya Thalapathy as the hero. Vijay will join Prabhu Deva after he wraps up Dharani’s Kuruvi. The combination of Vijay and Nayan under Prabhu Deva’s direction is something to look forward to.
