Chennai, Apr 13: AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa, a critic of the Electronic Voting Machines, today faced some difficulty in registering her vote following which she took it up with officials who attended to the matter immediately.

The former Chief Minister, a bitter rival of ruling DMK, is learnt to have waited for a few minutes before exercising her franchise at the booth in Stella Maris College.

Tamil ‘superstar' Rajnikant had some tough moments with still and video cameras surrounding him to get pictures and shots of the ‘Enthiran' star exercising his franchise.

The actor pressed the button on the EVM corresponding to his choice of candidate in full media glare.

However, Rajnikant's contemporary and veteran actor Kamal Haasan cast his vote after ensuring that the lensmen and videographers were kept at bay.

Top actors, ‘Rakhtacharitra' star Surya, his brother Karthi, Ajith Kumar, Sneha and others waited in queue to cast their votes in the respective booths.

Top comedian Vadivelu, also DMK's star campaigner who took on DMDK founder Vijayakant in a no-holds-barred electioneering, was seen cracking jokes with booth officials. PTI
