Tamil actor Vijay who has got a huge fan following in the state made a semi-political speech at the 'Sarkar' movie audio launch which happened at Chennai. Iliya Thalapathy is what people call him.
He came out in support of Jallikattu when massive protests happened at Marina beach, went to meet medical aspirant student Anita's family when the NEET issue was burning and also faced a huge heat from BJP during his Mersal film where the state BJP leaders alleged that he has political aspirations & hence he is defaming the schemes of center without any knowledge.
His next movie 'Sarkar' had also gathered the same attention since the name itself sounds political & the Actor spoke for about 9 minutes only on politics to a question asked on what he would do if he became the chief minister of the state.
Iliya thalapathy replied, "I won't act like one.I will do my job sincerely".Clearly, putting forth a strong message to the people and the government which got huge applauds for many minutes.
He also told that "If the people on top are correct then the rest will be fine. A man has to pay bribe to get both death certificates and birth certificates.Why do people at the bottom collect money? It is because people from the top collect it".
He also said, "if the leader is good, so will his party be good. Why was the Congress good under Gandhi ji? I'm not saying anything bad. It was a super party because Gandhi ji was a good man".
"People usually contest in elections to form the government but here we have our Sarkar and will contest in elections", said the next superstar of the state.
ADMK minister RB Udhayakumar who reacted to the statement of Vijay told that " We can enjoy Vijay acting as CM in the movie, but it cannot happen really because actors don't know what politics is, Let him jump into politics & let's see what happens then".
