First came video footage ostensibly showing actor and DMDK leader Vijayakanth beating someone in full view of a huge gathering, while campaigning for the upcoming Tamil Nadu assembly polls.

The candidate was said to be Dharmapuri Election Candidate for DMDK named Bhaskaran.

The story doing the rounds was that the actor had sought to laugh away the charges by saying that those bashed up by him were certain to win the election.

Then came the denials and that the DMK and its TV channels were “manufacturing dissent”, that it was "engineered content" and "silly politics" over an "insignificant matter".

Edited to add Video in English


Now, in face of mounting criticism, the actor was quoted to have told a gathering at Gangavali that he "did not beat or pat his employee but only asked him not to raise his head out of the campaign van"

But he still claims that the "opposition misrepresented the fact as though he had beaten up the party candidate"

Meanwhile, the candidate under question, DMDK’s Dharmapuri Assembly constituency candidate P Baskar has said that said that the DMK and the PMK were cooking up stories to tarnish the image of the party.
