Going by the current pace at which this movie is progressing, it can be safely said that Vijay 59 has a good chance of making it to theatres as early as next year and that's exactly what each and every Vijay fan would be hoping for.
But recently, the shoot was reportedly halted for several minutes and it is said that none other than Vijay fans were the reason why the shoot was stopped abruptly.
Spading deeper into the matter, we learned that Vijay himself requested for a break as he couldn't keep his fans waiting near the shooting spot who had gathered there to have a chat with their favourite star.
Vijay who spent the next few minutes talking with his fans also went on to click some photos with them before requesting them to go ahead with their respective work, it is said. Now that's a kind gesture from the Kaththi star isn't it?
