Actor Arun Vijay must be on cloud nine now, given that praises haven’t stopped pouring in from fans and celebrities over the success of his latest investigative Kuttram 23. The latest to heap praises on his film is none other than director Shankar himself.
The director took some time off his busy schedule to watch the critically acclaimed Tamil film. He is currently busy with the production of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming sci-fi 2.0. After watching the film, Shankar took to Twitter and gave the film a glowing review. “Kutram 23- Dir. Arivazhagan made the movie engaging with lot of efforts n all aspects n intense film making. Good performance by Arun Vijay,” he posted on his Twitter page.
It is, indeed, a great recognition for an honest attempt from Arun Vijay, who has also co-produced the film. “Thanks a lot sir.. to get a compliment from you means so much..(sic),” he tweeted in response to Shankar.
Shankar’s appreciation comes a day after Arun met Rajinikanth who congratulated the team on the huge success, even as he appreciated the concept and performances of the actors in the film. “Received the blessings from #Thalaivar #Rajini sir for the grand success of #Kuttram23 which u all gave us..,” Arun tweeted along with a picture that was taken during his meeting with Rajinikanth at the latter’s residence.
