Ilayathalapathy Vijay never shied away from meeting his hardcore fans and is always willing to spend some quality time with them. And this list of fans includes kids, people suffering from various illnesses and now a National Award winner.
Recently, the Government of India announced the National Film Awards and child artiste Adish Praveen was declared the Best Child Actor for his performance in the Malayalam film Ben. Adish, incidentally, is a Ilayathalapathy fan and expressed his desire to meet him in person. When this was brought to Vijay‚Äôs notice, the star decided to take time off his busy schedule to pay the kid a visit. The child was in for a pleasant surprise when Vijay paid him a visit. Extremely happy over getting to meet his idol and spending time with him, Adish had the time of his life. Vijay also obliged the kid with a photo session and the pics are now on the internet with the story of how the young National Award winner got the star to his place.
Meanwhile, Vijay is busy with his upcoming film that has not been titled yet. Referred to as Vijay 61 for now, the film is being directed by Atlee of Raja Rani fame. Starring Kajal Agarwal, Samantha and Nithya Menen as the female leads, the film has director SJ Suryah in an important role with Vadivelu being roped in for comic relief.

It may be mentioned here that Vijay and Atlee had teamed up for Theri and this is their second venture together, which has raised the expectation levels.
