The film industry is considered to be quite materialistic and once work is done, everyone goes their separate ways. But it is the presence of those few good men which gives a meaning and value to the circuit. Here is one such example of how a big star showed his gratitude towards the directors.
He is the Kollywood star Vijay and news from Chennai is that he has gone ahead and donated a whopping Rs 25 lakhs to the Directors' welfare fund. The idea is to use this money to support directors who are struggling. Vijay reportedly stated he owes a large part of his success to many directors.
So, this is his way of thanking them. The other interesting part is that Vijay had reportedly laid down a condition that at any cost this topic must not be leaked. However, someone got a whiff and the news came out. This gesture is being hailed by everyone in Kollywood and they say that this is the first time in the Tamil cinema history that such a thing happened.
