Rajinikanth’s emotional video message for Vijayakanth

Rajinikanth fondly remembered his friend, late actor and politician Vijayakanth, in a video message. He thanked the government for honouring Vijayakanth with the prestigious Padma Bhushan posthumously.

In the video, he said that the Padma books will now have the late actor-politician’s history in it. Calling him his dear friend, Rajinikanth said that he misses him.

The DMDK chief and actor died on December 28, 2023.

Rajinikanth’s video message was telecast on Captain News, founded and owned by Vijayakanth and his family. The video is now doing the rounds on social media.

In the video, Rajinikanth said, “The central government honoured late actor and my friend, Vijayakanth, with Padma Bhushan. The Padma 2024 books will have his history and it’s a celebratory occasion. It’s also a top honour for him. I cannot fathom that Vijayakanth is still not with us. He came, achieved a lot and left us all. We can never see anyone like him. I miss him dearly. Our Captain was a Madurai veeran (warrior). Thank you.”

On May 9, Vijayakanth’s wife Premalatha and his son went to New Delhi to receive his Padma Bhushan. President Droupadi Murmu presented the prestigious award to Premalatha.
