Rajeev Pillai in all praise about Ilayathalapathy Vijay

The new baddie for our Ilayathalapathy Vijay is none other than the hottie Rajeev Pillai. After creating waves in Mollywood and Bollywood, model -turned-actor Rajeev Pillai is gearing up for his debut in the Tamil film industry. A L Vijays film will see Rajeev sharing screenspace with Kwood superstar Vijay and Amala Paul. Interestingly, unlike his cameo in the Bollywood film Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal, Rajeev plays the second lead in this untitled K town project. It will be too early to reveal more details. Vijays look in the film is still not out. All I can say is that I play Vijays right-hand man, says Rajeev.

The actor, who is currently shooting for the film in Mumbai with Vijay, is all praise for the Kollywood star. Vijay is such a down-to-earth person. I have come across many small-time actors and even debutants with a lot of attitude. However, Vijay is just like any other person on the set. Once after the shoot in a school, I saw him sleeping on a bench. Despite being a superstar, he doesnt even use his caravan to take rest, says Rajeev. The actor says it was Amala Paul who paved the way for his K-Town entry. I knew Amala since our modelling days and it was she who showed my portfolio shots to the director. A L Vijay also knew me as he had directed the celebrity cricket tournament theme song. The rest is history, says Rajeev.
