In a significant move months ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha elections, Tamil superstar Thalapathy Vijay has officially announced the formation of his political party, named ‘Tamizhaga Vetri Kazhagam’.
The actor’s decision to enter politics comes following the approval from his fan club, Vijay Makkal Iyakkam, which gave a nod to the formation of the political party during a meeting held in Chennai last week.
In a statement issued by Thalapathy Vijay, he expressed, “We are making an application today to the EC to register our party ‘Tamizhaga Vetri Kazhagam’. Our goal is to contest and win the upcoming 2026 assembly elections and bring about the fundamental political change that people want.”
This move adds a new dimension to the political landscape, as the acclaimed actor transitions from the silver screen to the political arena, setting the stage for potential transformation and electoral impact in the upcoming assembly elections.
