"Out of the 36 films that I have acted this will be the best film" says Vijay about the forthcoming film Madhura. Vijay who usually underplays his role in the film and never makes any announcements about his film added "I am not saying that this has a story which has not come before in Tamil cinema. It's a different film for me. If you look at it all my films had action but it was linked to romance whereas here the film is totally action based". Vijay plays a vegetable vendor in a Madurai market. The entire happenings take place in this temple city. "To justify this title because it happens in Madurai and I am called Madhura the film was shot in and around the temple for a few days. We shot a fight sequence" said Vijay.
