Vijay’s birthday celebrations
Cinesouth – 22.06.2006
Today is Ilaya Dalapathi’s birthday and his fans are swarming his house to convey their good wishes to him. Since the `Pokkiri’ shooting is to start on July 6, Vijay is extra happy.
As usual, Vijay is doing some charity work personally and through his fan clubs. He has already started to issue 5 lakhs of note books to students from yesterday onwards. Today, Vijay will visit Little flower, Spastic Society, Mercy Home, Jerome Illam and Anbu Karangal to gift mid day meals to the inmates.
Uniforms to 500 school students will be given at Nagapattinam and Marungoor.
In his birthday message, Vijay asked his fans to give importance to education. “Every year, I help support the education of about 100 students. You also choose intelligent students who are poor and help support their education. Each one is talented in his/her own way. The important thing is to identify it and develop it.”
Even though Vijay has specifically asked that no cut-outs or banners be used, his fans are still using banners and celebrating with loud speakers. According to them, the announcement of `Pokkiri’ is Vijay’s birthday gift to them.
