Tamil actor Vijay’s followers are not known for understatements. From placing flex boards to pouring milk on the actor’s cut-outs, Vijay fans love for their hero is beyond imagination.

Their admiration for Vijay is so immense that they have started comparing the ‘Sarkar’ actor with Dravidian ideologues EV Ramasamy Periyar and CN Anna Durai. However, that did not go down well with Dravidian enthusiasts and the common viewers as the comparisons were heavily panned on social media.

Last year, Vijay fans pasted the actor’s posters alongside Periyar and former chief minister Anna Durai in Dindigul district of Tamil Nadu. “If you come to politics you will be Anna if you don’t come you are Periyar,” one poster read. The poster conveyed that if Vijay comes to politics he will be the Chief Minister and if doesn’t he will be the ‘King Maker’ like Periyar. The posters had then earned the wrath of common viewers. Now, it has started doing the rounds again on Whatsapp.

Vijay, one of the highest paid Indian actors, has a huge fan base across the country. The Tamil Nadu-born actor will be celebrating his 45th birthday on June 22nd. Since his upcoming movie’s title and the first look is also scheduled to release ahead of his birthday, the fans are in for a double-treat.

Having begun the countdown for his birthday a month ago on Twitter, Vijay fans also started sharing posters seemingly urging him to join politics. Despite the top actors repeatedly expressing their displeasure and asking their fans not to indulge in such acts, the fans are in no mood to listen.
