It is fans celebration
Our Superstar's Sivaji is nearing 100 days in innumerous
centers allover the world approximately. Fans decided to
celebrate this in Chennai Albert theatre with fan fare
and much fervour.
Honour to fans
KV Anand, Antony and few other comic actors of Sivaji
were invited to the event and they happily agreed. And
also came in right time and participated and honoured
Remember this is an event organized and conducted by
fans. Not production house or from Superstar's side.
This itself shows the difference between Rajini fans and
A big success
The celebration was scheduled between 5.00 to 6.30 pm on
Sunday Sep 16th evening so as fans would have time to
watch Chandramukhi 804 function in Kalaignar TV. We were
afraid about the crowd and worried how much would turn
up since Padayappa was being telecasted in Sun TV. But
beyond our expectation, fans gathered there and the
event was a big success.
Fans started pouring in around 4.30 pm. The band
orchestra was requested to play songs so as to keep the
fans in euphoric mood. Once the orchestra started
singing, everybody started dancing according to that. It
was a nice visual to witness that everybody from each
layer of society started dancing forgetting there
whereabouts. This will happen only to one name on the
earth. And it is – Superstar.
And crackers were burst and there was fireworks show. We
couldn't cover all with our camera as we were already
running here and there.
Arathis and trademark Palabhishekam
Later fans performed Arathis and trademark
Palabhishekam. Pumpkins were broken so as to vibe off
evil eyes on Sivaji's success and Superstar.
Numerous coconuts were broken and the place looked like
a sacred temple where devotees break coconuts.
Slum dwellers joined us
Local slum dwellers too joined fans and celebrations
gained the momentum. This shows what is true equality.
(Idhuthaanpa unmaiyana Samathuvam). Small children too
were dancing and giving cat calls and shouts like:
Supperrstaaar, Thalaivaaaaaaaaaaa, Sivajiiiiiiiiii…..
Interested bus passengers
Many bus passengers peeked their head from buses to
watch to celebrations as the area was rocked
continuously with band and fireworks. Many ten thousand
walas were burst and it looked more or less like first
day of Sivaji.
Meantime, Chief Guests of the event KV Anand and Antony
arrived and they were made to site inside the verandah
of the theatre. NDTV crew had a separate sound byte with
100 days memento distributed
100 days shield was presented by local fan club office
bearers to KV Anand, Antony and Albert Theatre
Mariappan. Actor Balaji and Muthukalai who appeared in
comic roles in Sivaji too participated in the event
which was held Sunday 16th evening.
Superstar's 200% co-operation for Sivaji movie
KV Anand spoke at the event that Superstar's 200%
co-operation throughout the making Sivaji is
unforgettable in his life. He also added that Superstar
means Punctuality and he was there for shooting in right
time each day of shooting. Antony said that Sivaji's
success is unimaginable and unmatchable.
Without others' help – pls bear sir
We have witnessed chaos and confusions in success
celebrations like this even organized by a powerful
production houses where they arrange everything with two
or more PROs. Since this was an event organized by fans
there were chaos and confusions prevailing here and
there in the event which made KV Anand and Antony little
bit uneasy. However, we told them to bear this since
this is a celebration organized by fans themselves
without any others' help. They said no probs at all. We
personally thanked KV Anand on behalf of Rajinifans.com
for his interaction with media throughout the making and
running of Sivaji in these two years and also
congratulate him for his best work in Sivaji.
Sweets and fireworks
Previously fans cut cake and burst out crackers which
rocked that area. Sweets were distributed to all
including audiences. Rajini's cutout was garlanded (fans
yelling – Thailaivaaaaaaaaaaa echoed the whole area for
some time during this time and fans performed arathis.
Band Orchestra was organised where they sung famous
songs from Rajini films.
Late evening all the fans enjoyed watching Sivaji movie.
