Tamil actor Vijay is rolling up his sleeves and gearing up for a real life fight. This time, the fight also involves Tamil Nadu's Amma, Jayalalitha. Reason? Vijay's Anna film, Thalaiva in Tamil, has been restricted from releasing in his home state.
Anna, or Thaliava, has released in all states except Tamil Nadu, resulting in huge losses for the film's producer. Vijay is naturally worried and has even written a personal letter to Tamil Nadu Cheif Minister Jaya Lalitha, emotionally requesting her to allow the release of Thalaiva.
Still, Amma has not budged. The movie was initially stalled over a bomb threat in theaters, but never released subsequently. Feeling the pain of the film's cast and crew, the Tamil film industry has come out in support for Vijay's cause.
Vijay is planning to hold a hunger strike to demand the release of Thalaiva. The good looking actor has a huge following in Tamil Nadu. The Chennai police commissioner has already been requested to provide safety during the mass demonstration.
This situation is no less than a film script with all the emotions and desperation. The hero, Vijay, has openly come out in protest against the Tamil Nadu government.
