Popular video Jockey turned actor Lokesh recently suffered a stroke which paralyzed his left leg and left hand. The actor has been undergoing treatment at MGM hospital in Chennai. He is known for playing supportive roles in Tamil films. Lokesh has largely used as a comedian in films who features in a scene or two. He rose to fame by playing a small but attractive role in Vijay Sethupathi Naanum Rowdy Dhaan directed by Vignesh Shivn. He played a paralyzed patient role in the film who was used by don Anandraj to scare people. It was a comic role that made a lot of people laugh but it is not fun when you see someone get paralyzed in real life.  
Lokesh who used to be quite fat earlier has reduced so much of his weight because of his treatment. It was earlier reported that Lokesh’s family has been fighting hard to fund for his treatment. Vijay Sethupathi who has been aiding Lokesh’s family with monetary help has now visited MGM hospital to meet him. Vijay Sethupathi spent some quality time with Lokesh and family and also clicked photos with them. Videos and photos from the meeting are trending on social media.
