IndiaGlitz [Friday, June 23, 2006]
Vijay’s Pokiri will hit the floors on 6 July. The much-expected venture from Vijay is the remake of Telugu blockbuster Pokiri featuring Mahesh Babu in the lead role.The actor, who celebrated his birthday on Thursday without much fanfare, is happy at the few corrections made in the script made by director Prabhu Deva to suit Tamil audience.
The Pokiri has heavyweights like Asin, Prakash Raj, Nepolean among others.With music by Mani Sharma, who has proved a lucky mascot for Vijay before and cinematography by Nirav Shah, Pokiri is expected to revive Vijay’s fortune in Kollywood.Beginning 6 July, plans are on to have the movie released for this Pongal.
Meanwhile, Vijay’s birthday was a very private affair yesterday in terms of celebrations.To be sure, he mixed with the general public, his fans, made donations to orphanages, provided goodies and rice to the needy, took snaps with college boys, exchanged plesantaries with the industry hands.But Vijay’s celebrations were all personal.
An intensely private man, Vijay always makes it a point to have moments with his family. All through the summer, when he was keeping a low profile not doing any movies, Vijay chose to spend the time with his daughter, son and wife Sangeetha.
Vijay, who described his next movie Pokiri would be the real brithday gift for his fans, also announced the setting up of a hospital in his late sister Vidya’s name. This would be to help the poor, he said.
