Earlier this morning (May 19), news came out that Captain Vijayakanth is admitted to a private hospital in Chennai after he complained of breathing issues. News reports claimed that he was rushed to the hospital around 3 AM in the morning, adding that he is currently under treatment in the ICU ward. The news created a huge buzz on social media and the fans prayed for his speedy recovery. However, an important clarification regarding the same has been made by Vijayakanth's political party, DMDK.

An official statement from the Headquarters of DMDK states that Vijayakanth was admitted to the hospital as part of his routine medical check up. The statement also added that his health condition is stable and assured that he would return home in another two days. The fans and people of Tamil Nadu were requested not to believe in false rumours and baseless speculations. This immediate clarification from the DMDK Party has come as a big relief for the people and it is good to know that Vijayakanth is in good health. Let us hope he completes his routine medical check-up soon and returns to his home.

Actor and politician, R Sarath Kumar took to his official Twitter page to mention that he talked to LK Sathish of DMDK and checked on Vijayakanth's health condition. In the 2021 Tamil Nadu State Elections, Vijayakanth's political party, DMDK (Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam) contested in 60 constituencies, in alliance with Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK). However, the party did not win in any constituency, and it was a forgettable year for Vijayakanth's DMDK. The party collected only 0.43% of votes in the 2021 State Elections.

Vijayakanth, in his political journey, will be best known for being the Opposition Party Leader during Jayalalitha's tenure as a Chief Minister from 2011 - 2016. For now, check out the official statement released by DMDK Party, regarding the health condition of Captain Vijayakanth here:
