Voting for the assembly elections in Tamil Nadu started today. The high-stakes state election saw a bevy of top Tamil film celebs descend on their designated polling stations to exercise their adult suffrage. In their own respective way, some of them made a stand while others urged voters to cast their vote while some campaigned and showed their solidarity to different political parties and leaders.
Most celebs showed up early morning to cast their vote and did not exercise their celebrity status to jump the line. Suriya, his father Sivakumar and his younger brother Karthi stood in line to cast their vote.

Thalapathy Vijay came to the polling station riding a bicycle. He was accompanied by his entourage. Whether he was making a stand against the rising petrol prices or not that was not clear and he refrained from releasing any statement.
