Even as Tamil Nadu-based IAF wing commander Abhinanthan Vardhaman became the talk of the whole world after he was captured and released by Pakistan, another army man from the State has become the topic of discussion of Vijay fans.
Tamil Selvan, the army officer, hails from Theni district. He came to his native on holiday recently, but was asked by his higher officials to cut-short the vacation and return to duty, following tension in India-Pakistan border.
An ardent fan of Vijay, Tamil Selvan informed about this to his good friend Pandi, who is the head of Theni Vijay Makkal Iyakkam. In turn, Pandi informed this to Vijay.
Following this, the actor reached Tamil Selvan over phone, appreciated his dedication for the country, assured him that he would come back home safe soon and promised to meet him when he is back.
An audio clip of Vijay talking over phone to Tamil Selvan has gone viral among ‘Thalapathy’ fans.
