Superstar Rajnikanth, a close friend of actor Vijayakumar for more than the past three decades, visited the SRMC Hospital in Porur yesterday to call on his friend who’s been admitted to the Hospital following a second ‘heart-attack’.
Vijayakumar, who has been caught in an unexpected difference of opinion with his own daughter and ex-actress Vanitha, has seen a lot in the last few months. The daughter-father duo had filed complained against each other with the Police seeking action. While Vanitha claims that Vijayakumar assaulted her and was denying her to be with her son (born of her first marriage), the latter has claimed that Vanitha’s second husband had assaulted himself.
In the meantime, Vijayakumar complained of severe chest pain on Wednesday and was rushed to the SRMC Hospital. Still in the ICU despite having been declared ‘out of danger’, Vijayakumar had a visitor in Rajnikanth yesterday. After spending a few minutes with Vijayakumar, Rajni spoke to doctors attending on him and enquired about his progress.
Later in the day, Sarath Kumar (president of ‘Nadigar Sangam’) and his wife Radhika Sarath Kumar and director Kathir called on the ailing actor.
