Thalaiva is a film which has Vijay in the lead role. This film is being directed by A L Vijay. Since this film has been titled Thalaiva (leader), there is a doubt that whether this film is political film.
Some time back Vijay had converted his fan club as people movement. He had also released a flag for this movement. Lots of charitable deeds are being done through these movements. Vijay also travels throughout Tamil Nadu and participates in the public meetings and also helps the poor people.
It was expected that Vijay will foray into politics. Since his film is titled Thalaiva, there are talks that Vijay will very soon set his foots in the political field. There was also news that there are political sequences in this film and Vijay is donning the role of a politician. When asked Vijay about this, he said, “There are no political sequences in this film. I am not donning the role of a politician. I cannot mention anything about the story.”
Producer Sunil Chandra Prakash Jain while speaking said, “The title Thalaiva is suitable one for Vijay’s image. The posters may depict as if it is a political one but this is not a political film.”
