Vijay was speaking in front of a huge crowd at an event promoting his latest film, "Dear Comrade" when a fan, in their excitement to see their idol, ran up to him and pushed him to the floor!
The actor then fell down and had to be pulled up by the people surrounding him on the stage.
The fan may not had wanted to purposely push him down but had merely wanted to greet him, a bit too forcibly it seems.
Not losing his sense of humour, Vijay reacted to the incident by saying, "Are you showing love or attacking me?"
Directed by Bharat Kamma, "Dear Comrade" is an intense love story and also stars Rashmika Mandanna.
Filmmaker Karan Johar has already bought the rights of the film for its Hindi remake. The Dharma Productions owner said wrote on Twitter, "Stunning and powerful love story! With top notch performances and exceptional music by @justin_tunes On point debut direction by @bharatkamma @TheDeverakonda is BRILLIANT as is @iamRashmika well done @MythriOfficial ! ANNOUNCING that @DharmaMovies to REMAKE this beautiful film."
Vijay's other film, "Arjun Reddy", is another hit that transformed into a hit Hindi film, known as "Kabir Singh". Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, it starred Shahid Kapoor as the hero and has emerged as the biggest hit of the year.
When Vijay was asked if he had watched "Kabir Singh", he said, "Shahid has done that film, and he has gone through the character, and there is nothing for me to watch it again. I know the story, I have done that film, why will I watch again?"
He had added, "I wanted the Hindi film to be a big hit, because Sandeep is my man. But unexpectedly, it became a blockbuster. Done. No more discussion there."
Both films have been criticised - "Kabir Singh" more than "Arjun Reddy" - for glorifying toxic masculinity. Both Vanga and Shahid have repeatedly denied the claims.
