Striving for a 100 percent voter turnout in the state of Tamil Nadu, many famous celebrities are encouraging their fellow citizens to get out and vote as the state is witnessing its Assembly elections today (May 16).
Actors and actresses took to their social media pages to post the pictures of their inked fingers and requested others to vote as well.
Among early voters were superstar Rajinikanth, politician-writer M Karunanidi and Thala Ajith. Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan came forward to cast his vote along with Gauthami and daughter Akshara Haasan.
Suriya, who couldn't vote today as he is stuck in the USA along with his family, released a press note seeking an apology. The 24 actor said he was embarrassed as he coudn't make it to Chennai on time.
Vishal and Arya stepped out together to vote. "Well da D day is here. Polling day. On da way to vote wit my bestie @arya_offl. Pls do step out and cast your vote. gb," Vishal tweeted before casting his vote.
After some time, the actors showed off their inked fingers by posting selfies on their Twitter pages. "Jus done casting our votes. @arya_offl n me. Pls go and cast your vote. Gb," Vishal once again wrote on his social media page.
Arya, known for his jovial nature, was quick to reply to Vishal's tweet. He said, "Thalaivaaaa... Building katroom apparam Katchi Arambikiroom aduthe election jaikroom #PuraitchiThalapathy."
Going by his tweet, looks like Arya is all set to start his own party with Vishal. What more, he even intends to win the next Assembly elections. Is he just joking around or is he serious about his plans? Only time will tell.
