Actor and DMDK president Vijayakanth, is busy both in the industry as well as in the political field. He is busy with his directorial debut ’Virudhagiri’, will take time off from the shooting schedule and campaign for his party candidate in the Pennagaram by-election scheduled for March 27.
According to sources, the actor-politician will hit the campaign trail for five days from March 21. “He will tour the constituency and address a host of public meetings seeking votes to DMDK candidate K G Kaveri Varman,” they said.
DMK, PMK and AIADMK are all in the fray to win this seat at any cost, each with its own reasons and compulsions.
“However, this would not stop the movie from shaping up as Vijayakanth has assigned some important works to his associates to complete during the five-day break. An action entertainer, ‘Virudhagiri’ is about a police officer who is brainy and brawny,” sources added.
The title ‘Virudhagiri’ was inspired by the famous Viruthagireeswarar temple in Virudhachalam constituency, for which Vijayakanth is the legislator. The film is produced by his own production company and a major part of the shoot is over, we learn.
