Due to the success of Star Vijay, On November 24, 2016, the channel named Star Vijay Super was launched. This channel focuses on the new line-up of fiction content and will also air old programs of Star Vijay. On 25 June 2017, Star Vijay rebranded itself with a slim bright yellow-orange logo and a new graphical packaging with a new slogan, Edhilum Pudhumai Tamizhan Perumai.[7] The colours used—yellow and orange—represent turmeric and vermillion and signify the local colours of the Tamil women.
