The actor along with his fans stormed into the returning officer's office to inquire about the status of his nomination.

The election commission on Tuesday had first rejected his nomination papers alleging that two of his proposers' signatures were forged.

Velusamy states that Vishal had appeared before him and had produced an audio clip that purportedly claimed that proposer Sumathy had been coerced by some persons to appear before him.

Earlier, the nomination papers of Vishal and late J Jayalalithaas niece Deepa Jayakumar were rejected by Election authorities. "Therefore, I conclude that the nomination of Thiru.Vishal Krishna filed in Sl No 72 is rejected upon my summary enquiry", the EC statement added. The by-polls will now be held on December 21.

"My nomination was rejected because two people who signed my affidavit as proposers told the authorities that their signatures were forged". I thank the Election Commission. The order said the required number of 10 proposers had not validly proposed the candidature of Mr. Vishal, and hence, he had not fulfilled the conditions for valid nomination. "The audio clipping is very real but my fight is now for R K Nagar, irrespective of who works against me", the actor said careful not to drop names or make accusations.
