Soon after the video and pictures of Vijay riding a bicycle to cast his vote went viral, there were reports that it was his political statement to protest against the petrol and diesel price rise. The reason behind why the Master actor opted to cycle from his house to the booth in Neelangarai is something else. Vijay’s team released a statement where they clarified stating, “The polling booth is in the street behind his house, and since it’s a narrow area, it would have been difficult to park his car there. This is why he opted to ride a bicycle instead, and there was no other motivation behind his actions.”
