Actor-turned-politician Vijayakanth was hospitalised earlier
today (July 15) following a chest pain. The latest reports say that
he has been discharged.
Sources say that Vijayakanth was taken to Apollo Hospital in
Chennai after he complained of chest pain. Now, the
actor-turned-politician has been discharged and we hear that he is
doing fine. His son Shanmuga Pandian, who is all set to enter film
industry with Sagaaptham, has been busy with shooting and
has joined his family now.
The news had shocked his well-wishers in cine circle and
political fraternity. But now they are relieved because
Vijayakanth, who had undergone an eye surgery earlier this year in
Singapore, is fine.
Vijayakanth has starred in above 100 Tamil films in the lead
role. He entered politics by floating his Desiya Murpokku Dravida
Kazhagam (DMDK) in 2005. For the past three years, he has not acted
in movies and has cut down drastically on his film assignments
after taking a plunge into politics.
