Actor Vijay’s gesture of riding cycle to the polling station in order to cast his vote became the talk of the town. Many people believe that the actor took an indirect dig at the central government’s petrol price hike whereas others say that he drove cycle to create awareness against the air pollution. However, along with millions of fans, enormous number of celebrities are celebrating the actor’s gesture. Criticisms for causing traffic and mass gathering are also surfacing in the online medium.
On the biggest day of Tamil nadu politics, some of the most prominent celebrated personalities of Tamil film industry have come forward to cast their votes at the early hours. Tamil actors Ajith kumar and Vijay have casted their respective votes and inspired their millions of fans big time.

After weeks-long campaign sessions, marathon rallies and mammoth road shows, the southern states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala and the union territory of Puducherry will vote in the third phase of the eight-phased election today. Voting in West Bengal and Assam – which voted in the first two phases – will also take place in the third phase.
Actor Vijay who enjoys a huge fan base came in cycle to cast his vote and the actor’s gesture grabbed the headlines of the media portals. He was spotted with a mint green shirt and blue jeans along with his cycle. Crowd gathered in a large number to click pictures, selfies with the actor.
