A few days ago, photos of Vijay at the Chennai airport, on the way to Georgia to start shooting for Thalapthy 65, went viral. Vijay, who is fondly known as ‚ÄėThalapathy‚Äô, was seen in a red checked shirt and black mask.
Earlier on April 6, Vijay became the talk of the town after arriving at his polling booth in Chennai‚Äôs Neelankarai on a bicycle. Various theories explaining Vijay‚Äôs decision were floating around on the internet, the most popular being that the actor was protesting the rising petrol and diesel prices.
However, the actor‚Äôs team clarified that he travelled by bicycle simply because the polling booth was close to his residence.
The production for Thalapthy 65 started with a pooja ceremony on March 31. Photos from the event were circulated by the production house on social media. The genre of the movie hasn‚Äôt been revealed yet, but it is likely to be an action- packed entertainer.
