DMDK president and actor Vijayakanth’s elder son, Vijaya Prabhakaran, is all set for wedding. His engagement with a Coimbatore-based industrialist’s daughter took place recently at a function attended by family members and close relatives.

According to sources, the bride is based out of Periyanaickenpalayam in Coimbatore and the wedding will happen early next year. Recently, there was a buzz that Vijaya Prabhakaran would be taking charge as the secretary of the youth wing of the party founded by his father.

Last year, he made an appearance at the stage in an event organised by the party at Anakaputhur in Chennai. Since then, he has been regularly attending DMDK events and making fiery political speeches.

“I would like to guide the youth of the party and they must support us reaching the goals of the party to the people,” he had said. Ahead of Lok Sabha elections earlier this year, he said, “I am not scared of anyone, and will not say ‘no’ to anything. There is no confusion in the party. A decision on alliance will be taken after the Lok Sabha election dates are announced.”

Vijaya Prabhakaran has been running a sports academy ‘Chennai Smashers’ and sponsoring a badminton team too.-naveen
