Update on Vijayakanth’s health

In an apparent bid to put full-stop to rumours surrounding the health condition of actor DMDK president Vijayakanth, his wife and the party’s women’s wing leader Premalatha on Thursday said he is fine and is in hospital for a routine check-up.

“There is nothing to worry about Captain’s health. He is completely alright. He is in the hospital for annual general check-up,” she told reporters.

She also said she would sure campaign for DMDK’s candidate at RK Nagar by-election.

Vijayakanth was admitted to a private hospital in Chennai last week.

A statement released by party stated that he has been admitted to undertake a general medical check-up and it is Vijayakanth’s routine to go for one every year.

He will be in the hospital for a couple of days, the statement said and requested party cadres to avoid visiting him in the hospital.
