Vijay meets Major Mukund's family
After knowing that Arsheya is her fan, Vijay met her at the 'Kaththi' shooting spot and spent some quality time with his little admirer. This has sparked rumors that the actor has come forward to sponsor the whole education expenses of the child whose father who sacrificed his life for the nation's security. However the latest update in the Facebook page run by the people are close to the deceased Major's family, has confirmed that this is fake news.
"Admins of this page have been receiving mails asking to confirm if actor Vijay has agreed to fund Arshea's education. The answer is no. Arshea is a Vijay fan, and the actor most graciously took time out of his shooting to brighten the day of his little admirer. The family is deeply grateful to Vijay for his affection. Indhu (the wife of Mukund) and the Varadarajans (Parents of Mukund) had clarified here earlier that they will not seek any monetary help in Mukund's name. They thank everyone for their prayers and warmth. We hope this post sets all rumours at rest".
