Star gesture

THE TINSEL stars of Kollywood celebrate their birthdays with a lot of enthusiasm. For Puratchi Kalaignar, Vijaykant, his birthday on August 25 was a `double bill' as it coincided with 25 years of film career.

Vijaykant decided to celebrate with charity projects. Amidst cheers from his fans, who are members of the Tamil Nadu Vijaykant Rasigar Narpani Manram, he donated tailoring machines to widows, tri-cycles for the orthopaedically handicapped, Rs. 1 lakh for under priviledged children, Rs. 50,000 for the MGR Deaf School, Rs. 25,000 to the Little Flower Convent in Chennai - all totalling Rs. 15 lakhs, he says.
