With his last few films not doing well at the box office and distributors and theatre owners asking him to compensate their losses, Ilayathalapathy Vijay was clearly going through a bad phase.

But the launch of his ambitious Tamil project Velayudham a few weeks ago seems to have changed all that.

Aascar Ravichandran, the producer of the film, is known for such grand launches; the audio launch of Kamal Haasan's Dasavatharam with Jackie Chan as the chief guest, is an example.

For the Velayudham launch, Aascar decided to invite 60,000 fans of Vijay.

Dialogues in his recent films, however, give us the impression that him joining politics is inevitable.
