Renowned veteran actor and Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) leader, Vijayakanth, is currently receiving medical treatment at a hospital in Chennai. His health has been a growing concern lately, impacting both his personal life and political engagements. Despite regular health check-ups and periods of rest at home, recent health issues compelled his admission to a private hospital in Chennai.

Now on the third day of his hospitalization, Vijayakanth is contending with a cold, fever, and persistent cough. Medical authorities attending to him have observed his struggle with breathing difficulties, leading to intermittent reliance on artificial respiration. This has prompted an outpouring of support and prayers from his fans and volunteers, all hoping for his swift recovery and safe return home.

Before venturing into politics, Vijayakanth enjoyed a successful career in Tamil cinema. His foray into a prominent political role saw him establish and lead the DMDK as its chairman in the Tamil Nadu legislative assembly. Notably, he held the position of Leader of the Opposition in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly from 2011 to 2016.

Vijayakanth's political journey included serving two terms as a Member of the Legislative Assembly, representing the constituencies of Virudhachalam and Rishivandiyam. His founding and leadership roles within the DMDK have solidified his significance in Tamil Nadu politics, drawing statewide support and attention.

As he remains hospitalized, his supporters and well-wishers maintain a hopeful vigil, anticipating his recovery and speedy return to good health.
