Is Tamil superstar Ilayathalapathy Vijay taking revenge on Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa? Yes, say the Tamil media circles. Even though Vijay extended his support to Jayalalithaa's AIADMK during the last general elections, Jayalalithaa ignored Vijay's gesture and waged a bloody war on him and troubled him in all ways possible over the past 5 years.
Now that the general elections in Tamil Nadu are round the corner, Vijay is reportedly planning his moves towards sabotaging Jayaa's winning chances. In the process, Vijay has reportedly decided to announce his support to Jayaa's arch rivals, the Karunanithi led DMK party before the May 16 polls.
Before the 2011 elections, Vijay's father and senior director SA Chandrasekhar met Jayalalithaa and openly extended his support to Amma and alleged that DMK party has ruined the Tamil film industry. Even though Vijay didn't make his announcement public, fans understood his motives and strived for Jayaa's thumping victory.
However, cold vibes seeped in between Vijay and Jayaa for reasons unknown and Vijay meeting Narendra Modi DNS his fans supporting BJP field 2014 Lok Sabha elections worsened their ties even further. Amma even denied Vijay her appointment, when Vijay tried for peace with Puratchi Thalaivi.
The cold war that ensued between them turned so bad that Jayaa also jeopardised the releases of Vijay's film's such as Thalaiva, Thuppakki and Puli. This time, Vijay has secretly sent signals to his fans association's president Anand and instructions have been passed on to his fans to work in favor of DMK. On the other hand, there are also several apprehensions among fans that Vijay might face even now challenges of Jayalalithaa manages to come back to power.
