Tamil superstar Vijay who turned 41 last month spread some good cheer by hosting an Iftar party for his Muslim friends.  Dressed in a simple dhoti and blue shirt, the actor himself served the food and later sat down with them to enjoy the traditional meal.

Vijay is currently working in director Chimbudevan's Puli.  The actor will be seen in a dual role in this fantasy adventure along with a host of other stars like yesteryear actress Sridevi, Sudeep, Prabhu, Shruti Haasan, Hansika Motwani and Nandita. 

The film is scheduled to release on September 17, coinciding with Ganesh Chaturthi.

With three consecutive hits – Mundasupatti, Jeeva and the recently released Indru Netru Naalai - actor Vishnu has plenty of reason to smile.
