One of the biggest actors in India and a star whose popularity is at an all-time high, especially after the stunning response to his latest release Master, Vijay has yet again proven to be a money-spinner powerhouse star for producers and filmmakers. Vijay's Master, which has been declared to be one of the biggest box office successes in his career, will next be seen in the tentatively titled Thalapathy 65 under Kolamaavu Kokila fame Nelson Dilipkumar's direction being produced by the prestigious Sun Pictures banner. 

As Vijay's Master continues its run in theatres and the film subsequently being streamed on Amazon Prime India since January 29, the superstar made a surprise appearance at his house in Panaiyur on the outskirts of Chennai. According to reports, the actor is meeting with office-bearers of the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam and is incidentally his first open public appearance after the release of his Master. Recently, Vijay had visited the popular Devi Theatres on Mount Road in Chennai to catch a screening of Master, which was later revealed after CCTV footage of his entry into the cinema hall went viral on social media. 

For now, the nature of 'Thalapathy' meeting with the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam members is unknown, with speculations doing the rounds that it could be to discuss the body's administrative functions. It is to be noted that Vijay had met office-bearers and members of VMI from Trichy, Madurai and the Kanyakumari districts back in November 2020, with pictures of his interaction taking social media by storm then. Once again, pictures and videos of Vijay's arrival at his Panaiyur residence where the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam's head office is based, shows countless fans stopping by the actor's car to catch a glimpse of him. 

We see Vijay wade through the huge crowd that has gathered, while waving back with a big smile and also requesting them to make way. Vijay's first public appearance after the Master release has no doubt brought a cheer among the superstar's fans, who have been waiting to catch sight of him once again considering the last time they had seen him out in the open was during the Master audio launch held last year in Chennai.
