ACTOR Vijay will enter his 35th year this Sunday . While meeting him on the D-Day is reason enough to cheer his fans, the actor seems to have yet another plan up his sleeve. He will unveil the flag for his Akila Indiya Vijay Rasigar Narpani Mandram on that day.
If that wasn’t interesting enough, the flag that the Ilaya Thalapthy launches will bear a striking similarity to the one that Rajini’s fans have for their association. While Rajini’s flag had Light Blue, White and Red with the Superstar’s image imprinted in a star in it, Vijay’s flag is said to be in Light Blue and White with Vijay’s face over it.
Likewise, another actor to have a fan club flag was Vijayakanth, who later used it as his party’s flag. The same goes for Sarath Kumar too and this new move by Vijay has, expectedly , raised eyebrows about his political aspirations.
With over 45 movies spanning 16 years in kollywood, Vijay had the lover boy tag attached to him until Thiru malai happened in 2003. Establishing him further as a hero the next year was Ghilli, directed by Dharani which went on to become a blockbuster. From then, the actor went from strength to strength, with hits like Thirupaachi, Sivakasi and Pokkiri, which came to soar his career after a dud Aathi.
The Ghilli crew joined hands once again to recreate the Ghilli magic but didn’t quite succeed in Kuruvi, which is his latest release. The actor has just begun work on his next project, Villu, along with Nayantara directed by Prabhu Deva.
Currently in Salakudi, shooting for Villu, Vijay is expected to flow to Chennai on Sunday morning to celebrate his birthday with fans. The birth day will end with a grand celebration on Sunday evening at 4.30 pm at the University of Madras, Centenary Hall. The actor is expected to unveil the fan club flag and announce other welfare activities that will be undertaken by his fan club in phases.
Vijay had earlier announced that he will build wedding halls in different parts of the state and now, he will launch the fan club flag. The ever-reticent actor might never intend getting into politics after all, and might just have wanted to mobilize fans after two box officer bloopers, but the talks about his political aspirations will sure not cease anytime now.
