Vijay along with his fans took part in a protest fast in support of Sri Lankan Tamilians. This protest which was organised by his fans club took place in 37 places throughout Tamil Nadu.
Vijay speaking on this occasion said,” I came to know that my fans have organised protest fast in 37 places throughout Tamil Nadu. It is not my effort. My fans have made this decision. They asked me that we should show our solidarity in the Sri Lankan Tamilians issue. They asked my consent. I agreed for this and hence I am participating in this fast. There is no politics in this. This fast is to show our solidarity in support of Sri Lankan Tamilians. The battle in Sri Lanka should stop immediately. Innocent Tamilians should not be butchered. We are in a position to go and fight there in support of Tamilians. We can show our feelings by holding this kind of protest fasts.” Vijay’s father director S A Chandrasekaran, mother Shoba and wife Sangeetha also participated in this fast.
