Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal recently celebrated their birthdays on June 22 and June 19 respectively. Apart from shattering records on social media, fans also donated essentials, provided food, and even hosting a blood donation campaign.
Kajal Aggarwal’s fans began celebrations for the actor along with Vijay fans in the beginning of the month with the ‘#KajalBirthdayMonth’ tag. While they recorded more than two million tweets on June 1 (the highest non-birthday trend for any actress), the trend continued through the month, until the actor’s birthday. Following the norm these days, they released a common DP, on June 18 and also released small tribute videos, and a common DP motion poster.
Several celebrities and media houses wished the actor online, while her fan clubs took to the streets providing relief material and donating to organisations. Apart from cutting a cake for the actress, they served food at Sudheer Foundation, Hayathnagar, Hyderabad while also providing masks and six-months-worth essentials to about 35 children. They had also organised a blood donation campaign at the foundation.
The fans also poured a packet of milk on her poster put up at the foundation, giving her the treatment a top male star would receive on the day of their movie’s release.
