Many celebrities showed up to vote early in the morning in an attempt to not face a large crowd. Several videos of actors who cast their votes at the TN elections have been making rounds on social media. Actors like Suriya, along with his father Sivakumar and brother Karthi, stood in line and posed for the cameras showing their fingers which were "inked". South superstar Vijay rode a bicycle to the polling station possibly in an attempt to encourage people to save resources.
Legendary actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan also cast their votes at the Tamil Nadu elections today. Kamal Haasan, who is Makkal Needhi Maiam's chief ministerial candidate and is also contesting the election from Coimbatore South, reached the polling station along with his two daughters, Akshara and Shruti Haasan, to cast his vote. The arrival of superstars at polling stations was followed by fans who got a little too excited at their presence. Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar was seen losing his temper with a fan who tried to get a selfie with him without his permission. The actor was at the polling station with his wife when the crowd seemed to go beserk at his appearance.
