Vijay's entry into politics: 

Earlier this year,  Thalapathy Vijay announced his political party, 'Tamizhaga Vetri Kazhagam', and said he would contest the 2026 Assembly polls in the state. "Politics was not yet another vocation but "holy public service," he said in a statement.

The name of the party 'Tamizhaga Vetri Kazhagam' would loosely translate to 'Tamil Nadu Victory Party'. The announcement prompted spontaneous celebrations from his fans, even as speculations were rife for some time about the actor taking the political plunge in a state known for stars graduating from cinema to politics, including the late veterans M G Ramachandran and J Jayalalithaa.

In a statement issued by the actor, he said, "We are making an application today to the EC to register our party ‘Tamizhaga Vetri Kazhagam’. Our goal is to contest and win the upcoming 2026 assembly elections and bring about the fundamental political change that people want."

However, Vijay said his party will not contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, nor would it support anyone, as decided in its recently held General Council and Executive Council meetings. "I have decided to complete the film I have already committed to, without affecting the party work and completely involve myself in the politics of public service."
