Vijay talks about being dropped from a film

Vijay said, “I once learned that I was selected for a part and was then asked to send some pictures. I won’t name, who asked me. After that, I was dropped from the film and I believe the reason was that a jyotish (astrologer) did not like my pictures. He did not approve of the prospect of casting me. The astrologer did not believe in me."

Vijay shares Naseeruddin Shah's advice

He spoke about Naseeruddin Shah as well, saying, “I never lost sight or hope. I think that Naseer (Naseeruddin Shah) Sahab told us when we were students, he said, ‘If you want to become an actor but you also have a Plan B, then just take that Plan B because if you want to be an actor, you have to go through a lot of tough times. It may not be easy for you.’ So, I was prepared to have just this one path and wait till my time comes."
