Sandalwood’s Black Cobra Duniya Vijay, who entered Sandalwood as a fighter and went on to achieve the status of a hero, has announced a new initiative – a body building competition. Titled ‘Duniya Vijay Classic 2013’, the competition will see body builders from across the state vying for prize money.
Vijay himself is a body builder, has become the first hero in Sandalwood to work on six packs. That became the USP of one of his movies, Junglee, early in his career. That movie directed by Duniya Soori was a hit. Now, it looks like it is payback time for Vijay.
The bodybuilding contest will be held on May 10 in Bangalore on the occasion of the release of the audio album of his next movie, Jayammana Maga. According to Vijay, the life of a body builder is highly risky, but they hardly get noticed outside their profession. Organizing a contest as part of his film promotion seems to be the right platform for body builders.
Vijay, who is going through a personal crisis, has managed to put together the event. The actor, who has applied for divorce, is being counselled by senior personalities from the film industry. Nothing has been heard about the divorce proceedings. Meanwhile, the actor has returned to Sandalwood to complete all his pending projects.
