Sticking to the habit of narrating a small story every time he speaks on stage, actor Vijay, on Sunday, gave advice to his fans using a simile.
Speaking at the audio launch event of his upcoming film Master, Vijay said, “I don’t know if you can call this a story but take it however you want. One of my film’s songs has this line, ‘Ella Pugazhum Oruvan Oruvannuke. Nee Nadhi Pola Odi Kondirru.’ (All glory goes to just one person. You keep marching on like the river.) Just like the song says, a river charts its own course. As it proceeds on its path, some people welcome it with lamps. At another point, some other people welcome it with flowers. The river, unmindful of their welcome, keeps proceeding. At a third point, some people who do not like the river, might play by hurling stones at it. But the river still keeps on proceeding.
“Just like the river, in our lives too, we will come across people who bow to us in reverence, we will have people who welcome us and there will be people opposing us. We must, like the river, do our job and keep proceeding on our path. Just like what I have said in the lyrics of my song. Life is very short friend. Always be happy. Problems will come and go, stay chilled. Kill them with your success, bury them with your smile.”
