Chennai, 11th June. 
As the political landscape in Tamil Nadu gears up for the 2026 assembly elections, actor Thalapathi Vijay has embarked on a strategic move to engage with young and first-time voters. The Tamil superstar, through his newly launched party Tamizhaga Vetri Kazhagam, has announced plans to meet and honor the 10th and 12th standard toppers in the state.

In a statement released by his party, it was revealed that Thalapathi Vijay intends to personally present certificates and cash rewards to the academic achievers in the presence of their parents. This initiative is aimed at fostering a connection with the youth demographic and garnering support ahead of the upcoming polls.

The actor-politician has scheduled two separate gatherings on June 28 and July 3 at the Sri Ramachandra Convention Centre in Chennai, where he will meet the state toppers. This move underscores Vijay’s proactive approach to engaging with the electorate and strengthening his political foothold in the state.

Thalapathi Vijay, who announced his foray into politics preceding the Lok Sabha polls, has been vocal about his aspirations to play an active role in Tamil Nadu’s political arena. In line with his political ambitions, Vijay has declared his intention to retire from acting, paving the way for a dedicated focus on his political endeavors.

Having nurtured political aspirations for over a decade, Thalapathi Vijay has already initiated several welfare programs through his fan clubs, ranging from educational scholarships to free distribution of food and legal aid. His efforts to connect with the masses through philanthropy and community outreach align with his vision for a more inclusive and empowered Tamil Nadu.

Thalapathi Vijay’s transition from a beloved actor to a political figure has not been without controversy, with his films often touching upon sensitive political themes. Nevertheless, his popularity and ability to draw large crowds hold promise for his political aspirations, reminiscent of past actors-turned-chief ministers in Tamil Nadu’s political history, including Annadurai, M.G. Ramachandran, Karunanidhi, and Jayalalithaa.
