South India

Earlier, Vijay’s father and Tamil film director SA Chandrasekhar registered a political party with the Election Commission of India.


Tamil actor Vijay on Thursday distanced himself from a political party registered in his name by his father and filmmaker S A Chandrasekar.

In a statement, the actor clarified that he has no connection with the political party 'All India Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam'.

The actor released a statement saying he has nothing to do with the move.

Vijay added that he would not be affected by the political decisions of his father. 

"I request my fans not to join the outfit simply because it is my father who started it," he said in an official statement.
Vijay warned that strict action will be taken against anyone who uses his name, his photograph or his All India Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam for any mischief.

"Strict action will be taken against anyone who uses or engage in any activities involving my name," he said.

On Thursday, Vijay’s father SA Chandrasekhar confirmed to the media that he has indeed registered the actor’s fans club ‘All India Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam’ with the Election Commission of India (ECI). 

He told that he was doing this in his own capacity and that his son has no link to this whatsoever. 

He also clarified that he registered Vijay’s fans clubs with the ECI in an attempt to provide recognition to the youngsters who are doing good deeds in Vijay’s name.
