'Thalapathy' Vijay has been a box office winner for several years for many producers and filmmakers having delivered numerous blockbusters on a consistent basis. Currently one of the biggest superstars in the country, Vijay's popularity has been scaling upwards in South India for many years in his more than three decade old career. Having said that, the actor has been a subject of debate for a while now among fans, celebrities, including many political analysts in regard to his entry in politics. Last week, news emerged that the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam had been registered as a political party under the name of All India Thalapathy Makkal Iyakkam with the Election Commission of India. 

Soon after, Vijay's father, veteran director S. A. Chandrasekhar said in a statement that the political party was started by him, while informing fans and followers that his son had not initiated it. SAC had stated that he had decided to make his political entry keeping in mind the interests of the members of the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam. Later, Vijay in an official press release said that his fans association has no connection with the political party flagged off by his father, while also asking his followers not to join SAC's political party. He further informed fans that strict action would be taken against those who use his name or picture for any political proceedings. 

Having said that, Vijay had earlier this week on Tuesday held a meeting with the district secretaries of his Vijay Makkal Iyakkam at his Pannaiyur residence on the outskirts of Chennai. There was a lot of discussion among fans as to what the meeting could be about, with many waiting for a statement from the superstar. Now, Bussy Anand, the in-charge of the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam has taken to his Twitter page to post a list of new administrators appointed by Vijay himself across Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Delhi, including other countries such as Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Bahrain, USA, Mexico, Germany and Australia. 

Vijay has further in his statement also requested all administrators to further strengthen the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam's welfare activities, while also informing them that the organization's name and his picture should be used only after obtaining appropriate permission beforehand.
