SA Chandrasekhar: I registered All India Thalapathy Vijay Movement as a political party to make Vijay's fans feel upbeat
The director-actor met the press at his home today after Vijays's strongly-worded statement disavowing any involement with the party his father registered
Following SA Chandrasekhar's initiative of registering All India Thalapathy Vijay Movement as a political party yesterday, Vijay released a strongly-worded statement asking his fans to not join the party just because it was founded by his father and made it clear that he is in no way related to the party or its activities.
Meeting the press today to clarify his stance, SAC said he started the party to make Vijay's fans feel upbeat. "Vijay's people movement was started in 1993. It isn't an entirely new organisation. What started as a chain of fan clubs got transformed into a people's movement in later days. I felt the time was right to convert it into a political party and that this decision would make Vijay's fans feel upbeat and give them a sense of recognition."
Asked why Vijay had to warn his father of legal action if he was aware of the happenings, SAC said, "Well, that was just his personal statement." Instead of explaining the goal of the party, the filmmaker kept insisting that he does not have time to explain it. "I can only talk about this in a one-on-one conversation. I cannot explain this in front of a crowd."
He ended the press meet saying, "I started this initiative with a noble intention. I hope only good things will come out of this."
