Vijayakanth, actor turned politician has not been active in both movies and politics in the recent past due to his health condition. He was once the Leader of the Opposition in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly from 2011 to 2016. Before coming into politics Vijayakanth was a film actor, producer and director. Vijayakanth is also the founder and current DMDK chairman of Tamil Nadu legislative assembly. He has served as a Member of Legislative Assembly twice representing the constituency of Virudhacalam and Rishivandiyam respectively. 
It was during the 2014 elections that Vijayakanth’s health started deteriorating. After a short-term treatment in Singapore, he resumed campaigning for the elections. But his health conditions worsened after the elections. He then went to Singapore for a full-fledged treatment. After the treatment, he lost his voice, body slacked and his gait itself changed. He suffered from multiple complications like thyroid, throat infection and kidney issues. He took treatment in Chennai, Singapore, and the USA. Vijayakanth’s wife Premalatha has now been taking care of him as well as his party. A video of Premalatha taking care of Vijayakanth has now been posted on the actor’s Twitter page. She seems to be a lovable wife that every man desires. Check out the video:
