DMDK chief Vijayakanth - fondly called Captain by his fans - has announced he will fight the 2016 Tamil Nadu assembly elections all by himself.

While bigger parties like the DMK and AIADMK are fearing to go it alone in this elections, Captain’s bold announcement on Thursday has sent shockwaves in political circles.

But Captain is not worried for he has decimated his enemies countless times in the 150 odd Tamil films he acted before wading into politics.

In fact, he earned his nickname after he portrayed an IFS officer in his blockbuster hit “Captain Prabhakaran”.

From local rowdies to high-profile Pakistani terrorists, the DMDK chief has killed hundreds of them ALONE and sometimes with his bare hands.

Here are the 10 times Vijayakanth fought his enemies alone:

A local don waves a gun asking Vijayakanth to back off! Captain decides to confront him. Don fires his weapon. Rest is history (captain is not).

Another time a bunch of rowdies surround him. Captain realises that there is no time to waste. He twirls his mustache... And...

Enough with dons and rowdies. Captain once tricked an entire police force and escaped from a high-security prison. This is what happened when police tried to torture him inside the prison...

After teaching the Indian police a lot of lessons, even London cops learnt a thing or two from Captain when he decided to catch some gangsters in England. Note how he stops the policemen from joining the fight and takes on the gangsters with bare hands.

Another epic fight where Vijayakanth takes on dozens of terrorists and a rocket launcher with just a pistol and, of course, his abundant intellect.

A lot of us believe that Pierce Brosnan copied this legendary scene in his James Bond flick ‘Die Another Day’ from Vijayakanth’s film. Here is the proof.

Captain’s coding skills are so advanced that he once managed to type a document in Windows Media Player.

Not only is he a coder but also an expert surgeon. Once during a critical operation, the electricity goes off and Captain comes up with this insane idea to save the patient...

A scene which shows his infinite upper body strength...

Here is another Oscar-worthy performance ( Yes! He is our Leonardo.)

Captain learns that there is a bomb on a train. The villain who placed the bomb is right in front of him. He comes up with a genius of a plan. Here is how it goes...

Captain takes the villain to a place where the train passes and jumps inside a compartment with him. Yes! Now the villain has no other option but to defuse the bomb.

Here is another instance when Vijayakanth turned himself into a mini tornado and whooshed and twirled to kill 20 odd thugs...
