Thalapathy Vijay's next movie with Sun Pictures was dragged into controversy when it was allowed to shoot by TFPC despite the ongoing film industry strike. However, TFPC gave their explanation as to why and under what circumstances certain films were given permission to shoot for a few days.
A huge set has been erected near Central Railway Station in the city where some crucial action sequences with Thalapthy and fighters were shot. On Thursday, after the shoot got over, Vijay came out of the sets and met his fans who had gathered in large numbers outside the venue. He waved at them with raised hands and fans went crazy. A video captured by one his ardent fans is going viral on online platforms.
