Vijayakanth's memorial meet was held at the Kamarajar Arena in Chennai on behalf of the South Indian Actors Association. Recalling his time with Vijayakanth, he said, “When I first met Vijayakanth, he spoke to me the same way he spoke to me even after he became a big star. Vijayaraj and Vijayakanth have seen the difference. He endured many criticisms and insults and came out victorious. He did not harbor any malice for it and was determined not to inflict the insults he had on others. That's a really big deal.”

He further added, "One of the many good qualities I like about him is his righteous anger. I think it has helped the actors' union too. His first film 'Thurattu Idi Mukkam' was a must go film for the film festival. It was his talent that made him a commercial hero. I also played a guest role in his film. He has the courage to talk to people he doesn't even like. Let's emulate that kind of character. At least try to be like him. Good bye Captain."
