There is no plan to convert the Vijay 'Makkal Iyakkam' into a political outfit, Tamil film director and actor Vijay's father, S A Chandrasekhar has said.
'There is no need to be in politics to do good for the people.Vijay is trying to help the people in his own small way,' he told reporters here last evening when asked if the actor's 'Makkal Iyakkam' (People's movement) would be converted into a political outfit.
The Vijay Makkal Iyakkam supported the Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK in the April 13 assembly elections.
Vijay's movie Velayutham would be released on September 15 or during Diwali festival, Chandrasekhar said.
Chandrasekhar claimed the film industry got total freedom after the change of Government in Tamilnadu.
