From early morning, a huge contingent of Vijay fans converged at the venue in mini buses, autos, SUV’s and two wheelers with party blue and white flag flying high. The star came in his new silver Nissan X-5, at around 10am.

As he tried to get on the stage the huge crowd erupted and was overjoyed to see their hero. The police had a tough time in controlling the crowds. A young crazy fan rushed from the crowd and made it to the stage and kissed Vijay on the cheeks before he was pushed out by the star’s security men.

Vijay’s father S.A Chandrasekhar is the master of ceremonies. He had tough time controlling the crowds and at the same time seeing to it that the speakers did not say anything inflammatory.

When actor Mansoor Ali Khan said about Sri Lankan President Rajapakse and how he comes to India to get arms, SAC tactfully led him off the stage. As SAC remarked: “Please note this is not a Unnavrutham conducted by any political party, but a protest against the inhuman treatment of Tamils in Sri Lanka. We want the government to hear the voice of the youth, the lakhs of Vijay fans.”

Later Vijay himself sitting on the stage in an informal chat with said: “I’m doing this on the request of my fans. My heart, like my fans, bleed for the Sri Lankan Tamils trapped in a war thrust on them. I want this war stopped, so that all Tamil people can live in peace.”

TVijayhe whole of Kollywood protested the ongoing civil war in Sri Lanka and its effect on Sri Lankan Tamils. Now it is the turn of the fans! On November 16th, Vijay’s fans will assemble at Chepauk and fast until dusk as a mark of protest against the Lankan civil war. This was decided at a special meeting held recently; immediately a petition was submitted to Commissioner Sekar seeking permission to hold a protest, who sanctioned it after the fans promised him they will maintain law and order during the protest. Now, preparations are underway to hold a peaceful protest in Chepauk on November 16.
