Massive superstar once again. A promotional event had to be abandoned when a commotion broke out in a college in Patna, eager to meet the star himself!
The video shows Vijay, in a white shirt, being led out among a crowd of hundreds of fans who had gathered at a college to watch him during a promotional event for Liger.
Another video shared by a trade analyst shows Vijay standing on a high podium in front of a large crowd. He is seen saying in Hindi, “We love you all so much (I love you all so much)”.
Last Sunday, Vijay and Ananya had to leave Liger’s promotional event midway due to an uncontrollable crowd at Navi Mumbai’s Nexus Seawoods mall. Some videos of the event showed a fan fainting in the crowd, prompting organizers to end it. Dharma Productions also said in a statement that the team had to leave the event mid-way due to security concerns.
Hours later, Vijay took to his Instagram Stories to ask his fans if he was “safe and back home”. He wrote, “Your love has touched me. Hope you are all safe and back home. I wish I could have been there with you all a lot longer. Thinking of you all at bedtime. Good night.” Mumbai.”
Directed by Puri Jagannath, Liger features Vijay as an underdog fighter from Mumbai, who competes in the MMA championship. It also stars Ramya Krishnan and Makrand Deshpande and has an extended cameo by Mike Tyson. The film will hit theaters on August 25 in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
