Thalapathy Vijay, Tamil Superstar by his large youth fan base, had filed a civil lawsuit against 11 people, including his father SA Chandrasekar and his mother Shoba for using his name for political purpose.
The issue began with his father SA Chandrasekar claiming that Vijay should enter politics, and even took steps to register a party in Vijay’s name.
Vijay’s father announced the name of his relative Padmanabhan as the party President, Shoba as the Treasurer, while he was to hold the post of General Secretary. Vijay, who was recently in the news for paying Rs 40 lakh as entry tax on Rolls-Royce Ghost immediately, released a statement claiming that he did not consent to start any such party and filed a lawsuit against 11 people to restrain them from using his name to conduct meetings or gather crowd.
The court is likely to hear the matter on September 27.
