Actor Vijay has reportedly approached the court against the formation of a political party in his name. Vijay has approached the Madras High Court against holding meetings in his name or the name of the fan club.
According to The Hindu, the actor has filed a court suit to prevent 11 people from using his identity for meetings. This includes Vijay's parents and fan club officials. He further requested that the Court declare the deed of association void. He asked for a stay against the 11 individuals as well. The court will hear the civil case on September 27.
Vijay announced that he had no direct or indirect connection with the party. Vijay added that he is not bound to follow the political aspirations of his father.
“We don’t have any affiliation with that party. Appropriate action would be taken if anyone is found using my photo or name or the name of All India Vijay Makkal Iyakkam for any political agenda,” he said.
Padmanabhan, who is close to Vijay, had announced that he would start a party in the name of the star. Following this, Vijay approached the court.
According to reports, actor Vijay's fan club is all set to contest the local body elections in Tamil Nadu. Earlier, reports suggested that Vijay had been permitted to contest.
