Tamil Nadu went through a tough period when protests and riots rocked the industrial town of Tuticorin. Many families were injured and death toll was reported to be 10. Many celebrities from the Tamil film industry condemned the retaliation by the police officials to disperse the crowd from protesting about the Sterlite Factory. Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth even visited the injured families of the protests and spoke to them about their situation. And the latest to visit Tuticorin is actor Vijay who visited the families to console them. Vijay visited Tuticorin and met the families to console them for their losses. Vijay travelled early in the morning today and met the families without much fanfare. Vijay was appreciated for the way he chose to meet the families without hype or much fanfare.
