One of the highest paid south actors in India, Thalapathy Vijay filed civil lawsuit against 11 people, including his father SA Chandrashekhar and mother Shoba Chandrashekhar. The complaint reportedly seeks a ban on the meetings using his name or the name of his fan clubs in politics by his former executives, including his father and mother, and his VMI team executives.
This issue arose when recently the Beast actor’s father reportedly registered a political party by the name of the actor. Notably, the veteran director and Vijay’s father SA Chandrasekar had registered his son’s fans club Vijay Makkal Iyakkam as a political party called All India Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam with the Election Commission of India. SA Chandrashekhar named himself as General Secretary and his relative Padmanabhan as the party President while Shoba was holding the post of the Treasurer. Thalapathy Vijay thus filed a lawsuit against 11 individuals, which included his parents as well to restrain them from using his name to assemble people.
Coming back to the professional front, after delivering blockbuster film, ‘Master’ that was released on the occasion of Pongal this January, Vijay now has multiple projects in his kitty. He is currently working on the Nelson Dilipkumar directorial Beast and the shooting of this much awaited movie is current going on in Chennai. Vijay will also be seen in an action thriller, which stars Pooja Hegde as the female lead, along with Yogi Babu, Shine Tom Chacko, VTV Ganesh and Aparna Das in supporting roles.
