Vijay waited for Surya till midnight!!

It is only fair to report a news that highlights the friendship between Suriya and Ilayathalapathy Vijay with less than a week and a month to go for the release of Masss and Vijay's birthday respectively. Talking about the bond he shares with Vijay right from the early days of his career, Suriya has recently shared his experience when the Kaththi star had invited him to his birthday last year. "When Vijay had organized his birthday party last year at his residence, he had invited me.

Since I was in Mumbai and was on my way to Chennai, I informed him that I will be reaching Chennai at 11 PM and that it would be too late". "But Vijay insisted me to come and asked me not to worry about the time as the party would continue until midnight. After reaching Chennai, I went straight to his house where everyone were waiting for me", said the Anjaan actor.

He also went on to say that they often look forward to each others' opinion whenever their movies make it to the big screen and that Vijay always invites him to watch his movies. Vijay and Suriya's friendship go way back to their college days as they completed their graduation together at Loyola college, Chennai. It is also to be noted that Suriya shared screen space with Vijay in his debut film Nerrukku Ner in 1997 and then went on to act with him again in the 2001 blockbuster hit Friends.

My Next Film Could Put Me In Jail: Kamal Haasan

Kamal Hassan, as we all know is a natural filmmaker. Most often than not, his ideas for constructing a movie comes from the society and from the issues that haunts him over a period of time. One such issue that's been getting under Kamal's skin of late is the support caste system manages to get from major political parties in our country.

Annoyed with politicians endorsing the caste system, the Uttama Villain actor has revealed that he had an idea to bring the concept onto the big screen. "The script is ready and I have titled it as 'Ullen Ayaa', incidents like Keezhvenmani massacre still sends shock waves into my heart. To understand the issues faced by Dalits, I need not be one among them, I just have to be a human being, caste system is a disease and I hate it", said Kamal Haasan. However, he later went on to add that, if such a controversial movie makes it to the cinema halls, he is likely to end up in jail given the usual opposition he faces whenever his movies are released.

"People usually create problems for no reasons whenever my movies get released and so if this film on caste system comes out, I will surely land up in jail. The title might sound as if the story is being told from a student's point of view but the content is entirely different", he added. Well, from a fan's point of view, it is important that Kamal dishes out hundreds of non-controversial movies and enjoy his freedom rather than produce one movie that might put him behind the bars.
