After an unsuccessful stint in Andhra politics Vijayashanthi is looking to make a comeback to movies this year. During the current political turmoil in TN she has been voicing her support to the Sasikala faction. After winning the controversial vote of confidence Vijayashanthi has sent out a video congratulating Chinamma and the 122 MLAs.
Vijayashanthi has said that while evil forces, including OPS, tried to bring and end to the ADMK rule, Chinamma has done her best for the party and has protected the 122 MLAs. She added that the only aim of Chinamma is to bring about a strong and permanent rule in Tamil Nadu and that is what she vowed at Jayalalitha’s grave which she has realized.
Reacting to Vijayashanthi popular music director James Vasanthan has stated "Does Vijayashanthi think she is a big political legend? Keep your views within your state for this is not a movie but the lives of Tamil people".
