Actor Vijay has filed a civil suit in a city court seeking to restrain 11 persons, including his parents, SA Chandrasekar and Shoba, from conducting any meeting and activities using his name. In the civil suit, he also sought a declaration that the deed of association is null and void and sought a stay on the conducting of any meeting and activities with the use of his name. He also sought an interim stay against 11 respondents including his parents. The office-bearers of his fan club were also cited as respondents. The matter is likely to be heard on September 27.
Chandrasekar had earlier tried to register Vijay’s fan club as a political party under All India Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam with the Election Commission of India. After the news got public, Vijay had issued a firm statement distancing himself from his father’s political efforts. , “I inform my fans and the public that there is no relation whatsoever between the political party that my father has started and me, directly or indirectly,” he had said in the statement.
