Actor Arun Vijay is elated after superstar Rajinikanth praised his performance in 'Kuttram 23'.
Arun said the superstar was equally impressed with the direction of Arivazhagan.
'Rajini sir called me to wish on the film's success and said he would like to watch the movie. We immediately arranged a special screening for him,' the actor told PTI.
The Tamil crime thriller, which released on March 3, has garnered good reviews but for Arun, the approval from Rajinikanth is something special.
'Rajini sir was quite impressed. He called my performance as 'mature' and appreciated my body language and dialogue delivery. He also lauded Arivazhagan's direction and the concept.'
Arun, son of veteran actor Vijayakumar, said Rajinikanth had called the first shot of his maiden feature film 'Murai Maappillai'.
'I told Rajini sir that I had to prove it someday since he introduced me to showbiz. He said, 'You have proven it now'.
That was something really nice to hear from him,' Vijay said.
