Thalapathy Vijay took everyone by surprise by accepting Telugu Superstar Mahesh Babu’s challenge to plant trees and create a greener environment. The pictures were officially posted on Vijay’s official Twitter handle yesterday (August 11) evening and it created a huge buzz on social media. Vijay looked super smart and the photos instantly became viral among the fans. The tweet has already crossed over 1 lakh retweets and it was one of the rare occasions where Vijay’s Twitter handle was used for a non-cinema post.

With two leading star heroes of South India, Mahesh Babu and Vijay coming forward and extending their support to this noble campaign, the visibility of the campaign became wider across the country. Vijay fans were quite happy and delighted about it and the fans of both the actors exchanged their happiness on Twitter. Ace comedy actor Vivekh is someone who is known for planting trees and he has planted more than 33 lakh saplings. While he appreciated both the stars for coming forward to support this campaign, he requested their fans to follow suit. He also requested the fans not to make any comparisons between Mahesh Babu and Vijay on this topic, as the goal in the larger picture is important.

He tweeted, “Both mahesh Babu sir n our Vijay sir have millions of fans.When they do some thing good for nature,all their fans will b inspired to follow it n do good.We shd appreciate this. Plz don’t ever compare one with another. Our ultimate aim is a greener earth”. This tweet has gone viral among the fans who have agreed to Vivekh’s request. Going by this, it looks like we can expect a lot of fans of Mahesh Babu and Vijay to plant saplings across the country to create a more peaceful and green environment.

On the work front, Vivekh was last seen in Harish Kalyan’s Dharala Prabhu in which his performance as Dr Kannadasan received rave reviews. Vivekh will be seen playing an important role in director Shankar’s magnum opus, Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal, Siddharth, Priya Bhavanishankar, and Rakul Preet Singh in the lead roles.
