Actor Vijay was in the habit of visiting the Govt. Hospital in Egmore and present gold rings to kids born on the day of his birthday. As years rolled on and as he faced still resistance in releasing his films on time, Vijay abandoned this habit which has now been taken over by Vishal, the incumbent general secretary of Nadigar Sangam.
Vishal is to celebrated his birthday next Monday (29th August) when he plans to donate welfare schemes to various beneficiaries. These things have been listed out in a press-release given on his behalf.
“During his birthday celebrations, Vishal would be visiting orphanages, Old Age Homes, Govt. Schools, Govt. Hospital, etc. to distribute welfare schemes to chosen beneficiaries. Besides, Vishal’s Fans’ Clubs across the State would be rendering help and assistance to the poor for two days on 28th and 29th August.
“Kids born on that day in select Govt. Hospitals would be provided with gold ring by Vishal. He would also provide breakfast to elders at Old Age Home besides presenting them with veshti and sarees,” the hand-out said.
