Thalapathy Vijay one of the towering stars of South Indian cinema, is busy shooting his new movie 'Beast' directed by Nelson and produced by Sun Pictures. Pooja Hegde and Yogi Babu play the heroine and comedian while Anirudh is scoring the music.

A few months earlier Vijay had filed a petition in the Chennai High Court seeking a tax exemption on a Rolls-Royce car imported from the UK. The single judge S.M. Subramaniam dismissed the case and fined him Rs 1 lakh and ordered that the fine be paid to the Chief' Minister's Corona Relief Fund. The court also sternly ruled that the actors should be real heroes and not reel heroes and condemned Vijay for not mentioning his profession in the case document.

The judge's comments were shared on social media and as usual netizens were divided in their opinions for and against Vijay. Criticisms made it look like Vijay had evaded tax while he was only asking for entry tax after paying all necessary taxes. The megastar's counsel in his petition stated “What actor Vijay asked for is his right under the Constitution. Service tax, customs tax, import tax are all tied up but they ask for extraordinary entry tax". An explanation and exclusion was sought under Article 226 of the Constitution.

Subsequently, an appeal was filed in the Chennai High Court on behalf of actor Vijay objecting to only certain areas which the court had recorded in its judgment. When the case came up for hearing again today, Vijay's side argued that the single judge's comment had personally offended him and that his comments had made him feel guilty. He added, “We have paid the outstanding tax. therefore, the opinion expressed by the judge that the entry tax was not paid and the case was pursued seeking tax exemption is also unnecessary.

Vijay's argument also added the car was bought with hard earned money and not only in his case but also in the case of actors Dhanush and Surya the personal attacks were unnecessary and that there is no need to mention the profession in the case documents,". The judge adjourned the case without mentioning the date of the judgement on Vijay's petition objecting to the single judge's remarks against him.
