Vijay took to Instagram Stories on Friday to share a boomerang video of himself and revealed that he has arrived in Lucknow where he will be shooting the third season of Mirzapur. He then shared screenshots of some quirky marriage proposals he received in the mail in his DMs.
The first screenshot showed a girl from Lucknow texting Vijay, “Talk to my parents about our marriage now that you’ve come here.” Commenting on Instagram Stories, Vijay said, “That’s the only reason I came to Lucknow.” Another fan from Pakistan texted Vijay, “Please come to Pakistan and talk to my parents,” and he replied, “I’ll be right over when I’m done with this Lucknow schedule. Mirzapur’s shooting will take place when it happens.”
Vijay laughed after a fan quoted Amitabh Bachchan from his tourist advertisement in Gujarat to lure him to the state. The fan wrote: “Gujarat is the best, come here. Bachchan Ji says ‘kuch din to gujaro Gujarat mein (spend a few days in Gujarat).” Vijay replied, “Hahahahaha I can’t even do that. You used Big B to get into a relationship with a guy.”
Vijay also got a marriage proposal from Canada. When a fan invited him to come to France and then tell him that her mother is waiting for him, Vijay said, “I don’t even meet my own parents that often.” Meanwhile, men were also amused at seeing these proposals, and one of them texted Vijay, “What’s going on here. Make them understand you’re an actor, not shaadi.com.”
Vijay portrayed an alcoholic and abusive husband in Darlings, which also starred Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah and Roshan Mathew. The film was released on Netflix on August 5. Apart from Mirzapur 3, the actor has Dahaad with Sonakshi Sinha and The Devotion of Suspect X with Kareena Kapoor and Jaideep Ahlawat in the pipeline.
