Tamil Actor Vijay’s Father Defends Political Party In Son’s Name: Report

Chennai: The registration of a political party in the name of his son and actor Vijay was only a step to encourage his fans and done with good intentions, noted Tamil film director and his father, SA Chandrasekhar said on Friday.
A day after Vijay distanced himself from the party being floated by his father, Mr Chandrasekhar sought to explain the background.
He said a “Rasigar Mandram,” a fan’s forum, was started by him in 1993 in Vijay’s name.

Later, it evolved into a welfare outfit and subsequently it became a “people’s movement,” (Makkal Iyakkam), he said. While the fans in the movement already have been engaged in a slew of activities aimed at people’s welfare, a “registration has now been done (as a political party with the Election Commission) to further encourage and recognise them,” he said.

On the need for converting the “Ilaya Thalapathi (Young Commander) Vijay Makkal Iyakkam” into a political party, he said, “I needed and I am doing.”
