Vijay awards is growing from strength to strength year after year. This year, they assembled a coup of sorts by bringing in Shah Rukh Khan for the event. The two people who stole the lime-light were Shah Rukh Khan and Ilayathalapathy Vijay. Here are the top 5 highlights of the night:


5. Vijay Rocks the Night

Ilayathalapathy took home two awards - best entertainer of the year for Nanban and favourite hero for Thuppakki, respectively. Vijay shared the stage with Shah Rukh Khan and Kamal Haasan while receiving the awards. 


Thuppakki cornered 5 of the most popular awards. Apart from Ilayathalapathy's awards, Vijay's Thuppakki also won the favourite film and "Google google" sung by Vijay won the favourite song of the year award. AR Murugadoss won the favourite director of the year for Thuppakki.


4. Shahrukh Khan steals hearts by his magnanimity

Shah Rukh Khan totally rocked the show with his uninhibited display of showmanship. Shah Rukh Khan was given the Chevalier Sivaji award and made it a memorable night for the winners by handing out the key awards.


3. Shahrukh Khan says "I am waiting"

When Shah Rukh Khan gave the award to Vijay, he called Vijay on stage by saying "I am Waiting", the crowd went into a frenzy. Shahrukh Khan poured adulation when he called Vijay a "Good Boy" and called him a better actor and a dancer.


2. Ajith shows his "mass" without participating in the event

When Shahrukh Khan recounted his working relationship with Ajith in "Asoka", he said he never knew how big a star Ajith was. The recorded decibel levels reached the peak for the night as Shahrukh Khan could not continue his speech for a while as fans did not stop clapping for a long time. 


1. Vijay and Shah Rukh Khan shakes their legs for "Google Google"

Not many times, people will get to witness Vijay and SRK sharing the same stage. This is one of the rare moments which will go down as the most memorable moment for Vijay Awards. Vijay and SRK's camaraderie surprised the attendees as they reported to have left the after-awards party together in Vijay's Rolls Royce car.


Miss of the Night

The big miss of the night was the poor air conditioning facility as Shahrukh Khan and many other participants were fully drenched in sweat. SRK took it sportively by making fun of Chennai heat and threw away his jacket as he began to dance with kids and Vijay. Apparently, Vijay awards organizers did not anticipate the level of crowd participation as energy levels spiked up in the room generating a lot of heat.


Interesting Quotes 

Dhanush when he accepted the award from Vijay said "This year, he was thrilled to receive two awards -- one is "Vijay Award" and the second is "Vijay Sir" award."


Another quote that got tremendous applause was when Shahrukh Khan said "I may be the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL cricket league, but my favorite team is Chennai Super Kings".
