The much-awaited, big budget bilingual movie marks his directorial debut
Vijay Antony in Pichaikkaran
A few days ago, film lovers were shocked to hear news about Vijay Antony meeting with an accident during the shooting of Pichaikkaran 2 at Malaysia. Several speculations did the rounds on social media ever since a few sources confirmed the news.
It was heard that the actor-musician suffered grave injury, though official details weren't revealed from the makers. The other day, director Susienthiran spilled the beans on the same, leaving movie buffs heave a sigh of relief as he assured that Vijay is recuperating faster. Now, the man himself has taken to Twitter to open up on his current health status.
He has posted a picture of his thumb and has tweeted that he underwent a major jaw and nose surgery and that he is looking forward to interacting with everyone. He thanked his fans and well-wishers for their prayers and concerns.
His tweet read, "Dear friends, I am safely recovered from a severe jaw and nose injury during Pichaikkaran 2 shoot in Malaysia. I just completed a major surgery. I will talk to you all as soon as possible. Thank you for all your support and concern for my health (sic)."
Pichaikkaran 2 marks Vijay's directorial debut; the movie was earlier supposed to be helmed by Priya Krishnaswamy of Baaram fame. A short glimpse from the much-awaited project was unveiled by Vijay a while ago. His fans are curious to know what they have in store this time.
Pichaikkaran, which was released in 2016, was a runaway hit in Tamil and Telugu. The sequel is being made in both the languages, and makers hope that the second part, too, strikes a chord with the audience.
