Tamil  Super Star Vijay has moved a Civil court against 11 people including his parents, S. Chandrashekhar and Shobha Sekhar for using his name for conducting meetings and for political purposes. The court is likely to hear the matter on September 27.

The All India Vijay Makkal Mandram had announced that they would be contesting the ensuing rural local body elections to be held on October 6 and October 9 in nine districts of Tamil Nadu.

Chandrashekhar, Vijay’s father had registered a political party in the name of Vijay ,” All India Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Mandram”, without the consent of the actor.
