Vijay looked hassled as he made his way through a sea of excited cameramen and reporters, to where Vijaykanth’s body was laid, surrounded by his family. The actor was visibly emotional as he talked to Vijaykanth’s family and touched his glass coffin. He took a few seconds to see Vijaykanth one last time and dove into the crowd once again. The police and his security personnel tried their best to keep Vijay safe, but a few men in the crowd touched the actor regardless. As he tried to enter his car, a slipper was flung at him. His security caught it and threw it back to where it came from.
