Actor turned Politician Vijayakanth was in United States of America for treatment of his health. He was unable to attend the funeral procession of his close friend M. Karunanidhi, following the latter's death and he sent a condolence message as a video.
The video which went viral online saw him crying his heart out for the late DMK Supremo, and recollecting their memories together. Once the treatment ended, Vijayakanth landed in Chennai early this morning. Instead of going to his house, he directly went to Kalaignar's memorial along the Marina Beach and paid his due respect to the legendary politician.
His wife, Premalatha Vijayakanth and DMDK's associate secretary L K Sudhish were seen giving company to the inconsolable DMDK founder and leader. Karunanidhi breathed his last on 7th August due to complications in his health, after a 2 week battle. He is succeeded by his children and wives.
