The hospital reveals that Captain Vijayakanth is currently under medical supervision and receiving respiratory assistance. A dedicated team of medical professionals is closely monitoring the 71-year-old leader of Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK). Officials indicate that his hospital stay might extend up to 14 days.

A week prior, the hospital had conveyed positive progress in Vijayakanth’s health, stating that he was responding well to treatment for a fever-related ailment. At that time, he was reported as stable and capable of independently performing all bodily functions. The expectation was for him to return home and resume regular activities after a few days of observation. Concerned well-wishers, including celebrities from the film industry and political circles, have expressed their hopes for Vijayakanth’s swift recovery on social media.

Fondly known as Captain Vijayakanth, the actor gained fame for his powerful dialogue delivery and action sequences in films. In 2006, he ventured into politics, establishing his own party and later forming an alliance with the AIADMK in the 2011 Tamil Nadu Assembly elections. His party emerged as the main opposition, securing 29 seats and pushing the DMK into third place. However, subsequent electoral defeats led to the decline of Vijayakanth’s party and a downturn in his health, prompting him to step back from public engagements.
