In an explicit gesture to demonstrate his interest in a political career, Vijay stated that if fans willed, his fan club would transform into a political party. Vijay was addressing a gathering in Pudukottai at an event organized by his fan association, Vijay Makkal Iyakkam. He also inaugurated a computer training center and some welfare schemes at the event.
He requested his fans to strengthen the fan club membership to one lakh in each district which will pave way to the transformation of the association into a political party. “Only you can make it happen,” he added. The event was attended by his father S. A. Chandrasekhar and other fan club members of the area.
Application forms for the association membership were also distributed.
