Earlier we had provided you with the top 10 reasons why Ajith could be the next Superstar of Tamil cinema. We had also mentioned that the only other person who could walk away with that title if not for Ajith is Ilayathalapathy Vijay.
While the topic, who could be Rajinikanth's successor is still left open for discussion, there are many surprising similarities between the two men leading the race.
But there are certain things Vijay can do which Ajith can't and hence Vijay might have an upper hand when the time finally arrives and demands for a new Kollywood Superstar.
Also, Vijay's selection of scripts of late has been impressive with Thuppakki and Kaththi going on to become blockbuster hits collecting over 100 crore rupees each throughout the world.
Many factors like his charm, outspoken nature and willingness to help those in need have contributed to his stature over the years making him one of the crowds' favourite.
Having said all these, it is now time to take a look at those top 10 reasons why Ilayathalapathy Vijay could be the next Superstar.
Take a look at the slides below for the much awaited reasons.
Clean Off-Screen Image
To become a Superstar, a clean off-screen image is of vital importance. Vijay is one such hero who often distance himself from unwanted controversies. But at the same time, he also makes sure to voice out his opinion if and when required, showcasing the skills of a good leader.
Massive Fan Following
This is one of the main reasons if not the reason why Vijay could go on to become the next Superstar. After Rajinikanth, it is arguably Vijay who has the highest number of fans in South India. The number of followers he has in states like Kerala apart from Tamil Nadu is unparalleled.
Social Welfare Organizations
There are many social welfare organizations set up in the name of Vijay across Tamil Nadu. The most prominent of them all is 'Vijay Makkal Iyakkam' which was launched by the actor himself in 2009. He also extends his support for those in need as mentioned earlier.
High Percentage Of Hit Rate
There is a reason why Rajinikanth went on to become a Superstar surpassing Kamal Haasan and it is the high percentage of hit rate the actor boasts of. Likewise, Vijay has a phenomenal success rate right throughout his career.
Multi Talented Personality
Vijay is loved by many largely because he is a multi talented personality. Apart from scoring vital points with his acting skills, he can create a huge impact with his singing abilities. But his main weapon is his dance moves. Vijay has been and still is one of the most impressive dancers Kollywood has ever produced.
Good Screen Presence
There is a reason why Vijay is called a 'mass hero'. The moment he appears on screen, he demands a huge applause from his fans and movie lovers alike. His screen presence is definitely larger than life, an important attribute indeed to become a Superstar.
A Phenomenon Called Vijay
Over the last few years Vijay is heading in the right direction to become a phenomenon worldwide. Post Baashha, Rajinikanth was turned into a force very quickly and hence sometimes, all it might take is a couple of months to turn someone into a force to reckon with.
Frequent Interaction With Fans
Vijay is one actor who often uses social media platforms such as Twitter to stay connected with his fans. His efforts to understand his fans better is praiseworthy, for at the end of the day, all celebrities put in so much of efforts to make their fans and audience happy.
Favourite Among Other Celebrities
Vijay has always made his presence felt at almost all important Kollywood and South Indian Film fraternity gatherings. His indulgence in such important functions have made him a favourite among other celebrities. After all, contemporaries' support is vital in the growth of any individual in any said field.
Shares Many Similarities With The Current Superstar
The last but one of the most important reason is Vijay does share a lot of similarities with Superstar Rajinikanth. Be it the way he carries himself, his selection of scripts and the way he values his fans, Vijay is the closest celebrity in Kollywood to have qualities similar to that of Rajinikanth.
