6 Feb – It looks like the Tamil movie industry is going to lose another giant, as Vijay revealed that he will be withdrawing from his acting career to focus on his politics.

The "Leo" star shared as much following the launch of his political party Tamilaga Vettri Kazhagam in Tamil Nadu, and wrote, "According to me, politics is not just another job for me. It's a sacred job. Not just political heights, I understood that I need to learn the length and breadth of politics from my predecessors."

"I am preparing myself for it mentally. So, politics is not a hobby. It's my deepest desire. I want to involve myself completely. Hence, I will complete one more film that I committed to and become a full-fledged politician. This is how I'd pay my debts to the people of Tamil Nadu," he added.

It is noted that the actor was previously announced to star in a new movie called "The Greatest of All Time", which will be his 69th film.

With the slogan of "All Are Equal By Birth", Vijay's Tamilaga Vettri Kazhagam will be contesting in the 2026 elections.

His upcoming movie will either be his penultimate or his last project
