Kalidas, son of Malayalam actor Jayaram is an ardent fan of actor Vijay and he is also known for mimicking the Thuppakki actor in various award shows.
Recently Vijay saw Paava Kadhaigal on Netflix and loved the performance of Kalidas in Thangam written and directed by Sudha Kongara. In Thangam, Kalidas played an effeminate role that his performance was lauded by critics.
Kalidas also wanted to meet Vijay for a long time and knowing this, the actor met him recently in his Chennai residence.
It is worth mentioning here that earlier Vijay also appreciated Kalidas's costar Shanthanu over the phone for his performance in Thangam. Kalidas's recent OTT release Oru Pakka Kadhai has also earned positive reviews.
Kalidas has two Malayalam films Jack and Jill and Backpackers in the pipeline.
