While there’s no doubt about the popularity of Vijay in Tamil Nadu, the love from fans in Kerala is what is surprising. And in a tremendous gesture, followers of the actor in the state have unveiled a grand cut-out of the actor. The cut-out, featuring his look from 'Sarkar', measured 175 feet and said to be the tallest for an Indian actor in the country. The initiative was led by his fan club Kollam Nanbans, who had earlier announced about the initiative on their Twitter profile.
According to reports, Malayalam actor Sunny Wayne was present at the unveiling. From his song exploding at its loudest, fireworks setting off, spotlight on Vijay's face at the time of the unveiling to flags being waved, the event, held on November 2, was no less than a festival. Not just that, there was more dance and music, obviously on Thalapathy’s songs, from an energetic group. The fan club also reportedly announced Rs 1 lakh for social service.
Later they also shared that people from far were coming to have a look at the cutout, which had become a tourist attraction, but they have decided to pull it down due to weather and for safety.
No prizes for guessing, the reason for their gesture is the release of his upcoming film ‘Sarkar,’ which is hitting the screens on 6 November. The same group had also announced that the movie would be screened for 24 hours, 8 shows a day, on the release day.
