His father and director S A Chandrasekar accompanied the actor during the meeting.
Talking to the media after the meeting, he said, “I’m extremely happy that Amma had a landslide victory. I was really hoping for a change. Now, it seems that all people in Tamil Nadu had felt exactly the same way. This is a much needed change and the scale of victory is amazing. “
Vijay also said he is happy that in his own way, he lent support to Amma. Says the star, “I want to thank my fans who form the Makkal Iyakkam. They supported my endeavours and had total faith in my decision to support Jayalalithaa. They worked very hard at the grass-root level to achieve our goal.”
