Thalapathy Vijay is celebrating his 47th birthday today, June 22. On the eve of Vijay's birthday, a Twitter Spaces session was organized which saw director Lokesh Kanagaraj, Nelson Dilipkumar, Keerthy Suresh, Malavika Mohanan and Anirudh Ravichander speak about their memories with Vijay. Malavika revealed that she found Vijay to be a reserved person, but later Vijay became comfortable and showcased his fun side.
Speaking about her relationship with Vijay, Malavika said, "The very first sequence I shot for the film was the jail sequence. I had a lengthy dialogue while he listens to me. He put me at ease by asking me questions like where I was from. I used to think he was a reserved person but he is a fun-loving guy. I had asked him what he wants for his birthday. He said he doesn’t like receiving gifts. Though he loves Chennai and Tamil Nadu, New York is also his favorite place in the world. I would like to take him there. He hasn’t been there for the past two years owing to the Covid situation. Vijay sir enjoyed Baaghi 3 when we saw the film as a team in a Mumbai theatre. He screamed Thalaivaa when Tiger appeared on the screen. He likes Tiger; he’s a big fan (sic)."
