Thalapathy Vijay files suit against parents, others for using his name for political purposes

Joseph Vijay, popularly known as Thalapathy Vijay, has registered a case against 11 defendants including his parents. The Kollywood star has filed a civil suit in a city court seeking an injunction to restrain his father SA Chandrashekhar and his mother Shoba, including others, from using their names. Additionally, the suit appealed against the use of the names of their fan clubs in politics or the holding of any meetings or gatherings of the public.

The matter came to the fore on Sunday when Vijay decided to file a case in a Chennai court. According to a report in The Hindu, Vijay’s father, SA Chandrashekhar claimed that the actor should enter politics. He allowed a registered body of Vijay’s fans to contest the local body elections as independent candidates. Chandrasekhar formed a party called All India Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam.

He nominated himself as general secretary and his relative Padmanabhan to take over as party president and Shoba as treasurer. Soon after, Vijay issued a statement declaring that his consent was not given to launch any such party. He then filed suit against 11 people to prevent them from using their names to gather people. The court is likely to hear the matter on September 27, 2021.

Last year, media reports claimed that Vijay would join his father’s party. In a public statement, Vijay refuted such claims and clarified that he had no affiliation with the political party.

Vijay clarified that he was not attached to any statement issued by his father and was not bound by his political aspirations. An excerpt of the statement, roughly translated into English, read, “I request my fans not to join the party that my father has started. If anyone can use my name, photo or my fan clubs’ political tries to misuse for aspirations, then I will take necessary action against them.”
