Earlier this morning (April 6), Thalapathy Vijay cast his vote in Tamil Nadu State Election 2021 which is happening across the state in full swing. What grabbed the attention of everyone is how Vijay came to the polling booth. The Mersal actor travelled from his house to the polling booth in a cycle and he was surrounded by his fans who came alongside him. The visuals and pictures of Vijay riding the cycle have gone viral on social media and it has become a big topic of discussion. There have been a lot of speculations regarding Vijay's decision to ride a bicycle. Some of the reports suggested that Vijay indirectly opposed the petrol and diesel hike and hence travelled in a bicycle and a few other reports claimed that this was an indication of his support towards Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party.

To clear the air, an official statement was released through Vijay's PRO, Riaz K Ahmed. It has been officially clarified that Vijay opted to travel in a cycle since his polling booth was near his residence and there were no further reasons behind it. The official clarification statement from the PRO read, "Thalapathy Vijay decided to go by cycle instead of using the car because the poll booth was right next to his residence and taking the car might have congested the road even more. There was no other intention behind it.". Well, this will put an end to all the speculations and various theories behind Vijay's decision to ride a bicycle.

On the acting front, Vijay's next film will be Thalapathy 65 which is directed by Nelson Dilipkumar of Kolamaavu Kokila and Doctor fame. Produced by Sun Pictures, Thalapathy 65 will have music composed by rockstar Anirudh Ravichander who has a tremendous track record with both Vijay and Nelson. The young and happening sensation, Pooja Hegde will be seen as the female lead, while VTV Ganesh and popular Malayalam actress Aparna Das would be seen in important roles. The rest of the cast is yet to be officially announced.
