PMK's Past Issues with Vijay
Earlier when the posters of Thuppakki and Sarkar had released, PMK had slammed the actor for promoting cigarette. The party had stated that being an icon of youths, he should not mislead youngsters by doing something which is harmful for health.

The PMK had urged him to show responsibility as an actor. Now, it has to be seen whether the poster of Master comes under attack.
