Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s 52nd film Velayudham was launched in a grand event at the Madras University Hall today. Velayudham is directed by Jayam Raja and produced by Aascar Ravichandran. Around 50,000 diehard fans of Vijay turned up for the event. Vijay Anthony is the music director.
The pooja and kick off event of Vijay’s Velayudham, held today, was as much as a family event as it was a fan event. Fans from 30 districts in Tamil Nadu thronged the Madras University Centenary Hall in Chepauk to get a glimpse of Vijay and to participate in the commencement of the movie. Fans, who were selected to attend the event, received a gift hamper with a Velayudham Tshirt. They were also served with Biriyani and refreshments to go along with it.
Vijay was all praise for producer Aascar Ravichandran and revealed that it was Ravi’s idea to have fans participate in the pooja of Velayudham.
