S.A Chandrasekaran, actor-producer-director and father of actor Vijay, has said that Vijay might not immediately jump into the political arena (before the commencement of the Assembly elections due for early next year) and won’t be floating his political outfit in the near future.
SAC, who had a 45-minute long meeting the AIADMK supremo J. Jayalalitha a few days back, was in Erode to look for the suitable ‘locations’ to shoot his upcoming directorial venture ‘Sattapadi Kutram’. He admitted that the film was a ‘remake’ of his own 1982 hit ‘Sattam Oru Iruttarai’ and added that he was making subtle changes in screenplay to suit today’s trend.
“I met J Jayalalitha Madam for courtesy sake. No doubt, I discussed some personal and family problems with her as she is a popular leader and a leader of the masses. I have nothing to hide. I have known many political leaders from the late Kamarajar, MGR to the present genre of M Karunanidhi, Vijaykanth, etc. but am unaware of the functioning of their respective political outfits.
“I might enter politics in future but there is no such plan as of now. I might even indulge in campaigning during the elections for the party which aims to be people-centric. I don’t think Vijay is in a hurry to float his own political outfit and plunge into politics. He has plenty of groundwork to do before he does so…” said SAC.
