Troubles seem to have become a synonym for Illayathalapathy Vijay. He is probably one actor from the current generation, who has faced issues during his film releases one after the other. In the last few years, some of his decisions related to his political connections have adversely affected his films causing losses for his producers. Now, the actor is returning with Jilla and luckily this film has not faced much issues, which has made his fans happy.
In the couple of years, Vijay's ambition to take a plunge into politics seems to have back fired. The saddest part of the story is that his films became victims of political cold wars. The actor's career saw a disappointing downfall between 2007 and 2010 with his much-hyped films like Kuruvi, Sura, etc., bombing at the Box Office. To add salt to the injury, he had differences with a production house that was run by a political party that paved way for more troubles to come in the following years.
Soon some of the theatre owners and distributors started creating troubles for his film. His Kaavalan faced troubles just a few days before the release. Vijay's prestige was at stake. But with the help of producer/distributor Aascar Ravichandran, he managed to bail out the film from crisis to release the film successfully in the state. The film became a moderate hit, but gave a big relief for him as his movie did decently after a few years. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
Signs Of Vijay Returning To Form
The decent response for Kaavalan gave the signs of Vijay returning to good form. His next release Velayudham in the same year turned out to be a superhit and ended his bad years with this victory.
Nanban Brought Vijay To Top League Again
However, Shankar's Nanban brought him to the top league again. The commercial success of the film reinstated his position in the industry. More importantly, not only his fans, but general audience head full praise for the actor.
Vijay Returned To Number 1 Position
The best was yet to come for Vijay in 2012 as AR Murugadoss made a mass-class Blockbuster in the form of Thuppakki. In many terms, this became bigger than Nanban simply because it was an original creation. With three hits on the trot, the Illayathalapathy occupied the number one position after a long time.
Vijay Became A Victim Of Politics Again
However, when fans were expecting yet another mass hit from Vijay, his Thalaivaa became a victim of political games in the state. His association with a political party during the last Assembly Elections ended for some reasons and that backfired this film. The movie, in its own territory, was not released for two weeks after theatre owners received bomb threat letters from unknown groups.
Now, the actor is returning with Jilla. This time, the actor has kept the film low profile and doesn't want to be in news other than cinema. As a result, the film has not landed in any troubles except the last-minute issue over the title, which is now resolved. The Illayathalapathy is now ready to silence his critics, who often try to pull him down. It is an action movie, which also stars Mohanlal and Kajal Aggarwal in the leads.
