However, the Leo actor recently made headlines for another reason. He announced earlier this month that he would be starting his own political party named Tamilaka Vetri Kazhagam, and aims to contest in the 2026 Legislative Assembly elections. In the latest update, it is being reported that Thalapathy Vijay’s mother, and playback singer Shoba Chandrasekhar will be holding a press meet tomorrow, February 16th. The reason for the press conference is unknown, but it is speculated that she will talk about her son’s political entry.

The Bigil actor mentioned that the party had applied for official registration to the Chief Election Commission of India, and added that the President, Chief Secretariat and General Body Members have been elected on January 25th. He further said that the party bylaws were passed on the same day as well.

Vijay also said that the Party’s flag, symbol, manifesto, and other details will be revealed once the Election Commission approves of the Party. Additionally, it was made clear that the TVK Party is focussing on the 2026 Legislative Assembly elections, and has no intentions of contesting in the 2024 Parliamentary elections.
