Premalatha Vijayakanth warns against AI use of late actor Vijayakanth

Wednesday 10th July 2024 08:14 EDT

Vijayakanth, a revered figure in Tamil cinema, passed away last December, leaving a significant void. Filmmakers have since attempted to revive the actor using AI in their movies, prompting his wife, Premalatha Vijayakanth, to demand that they seek family permission beforehand. She emphasised that no one has done so thus far.

Premalatha Vijayakanth had previously confirmed Vijayakanth's AI-assisted cameo in Vijay's 'GOAT' and praised the bond between the actors. She mentioned Vijayakanth's brief appearance, citing her inability to refuse Vijay and his team's request. However, her recent statement indicates a change in permission stance, causing confusion among fans.

Director-cinematographer Vijay Milton recently revealed Vijayakanth's role in his upcoming film 'Mazhai Pidikkatha Manithan' at the movie's audio launch, generating excitement among the audience. It seems likely this is the film Premalatha Vijayakanth was referring to in her latest statement. Fans are eager to see how she responds to this apparent refusal.
