    New Delhi, Aug 25: Popular Tamil actor Vijay today (Aug 25) joined a number of celebrities in expressing support to Anna Hazare's fast for a strong Lokpal, saying the Gandhian's stir has triggered a nation-wide debate on uprooting corruption.

    Vijay, who has acted in over 50 films in Tamil language and has a huge fan following, flew in from Chennai this morning and met Hazare at the Ramlila Maidan, the venue of his fast.

    Saluting Anna's "will power", Vijay said the way the movement is getting public support that too without any political background is praiseworthy.

    "The movement has triggered a nation-wide debate on uprooting corruption. I am very proud to be here as a Tamilian from Tamil Nadu. I pray for his good health," he told Hazare's supporters.

    Prior to Vijay, Tamil film Super Stars Rajinikanth and Surya, lent their support to the anti-corruption campaign, led by Anna Hazare.
