Vijay answered some of the questions posed by Sathyaraj, Prabhu and Asin.
Actor Sathyaraj: His success in comedy?
Vijay : I like Super Star Rajnikant’s comedy and I also adopt your (Sathyaraj) `lollu’ comedy. My style is a mix of both.
Prabhu: How come a good physique comes with your good looks?
Vijay: The reason for my fitness is my parents and family. And, my fans. They are responsible for my happiness. People say if a person is happy then it would show on his face.
