Politician and actor Vijayakanth who is away from the limelight for a few years now has flown to America to undergo medical treatments. Videos and pictures from the airport are going viral on the internet.

According to sources, he will be accompanied by his wife and party leader Premalatha, and other members of the family. Vijayakanth would stay in the US for a couple of weeks and return home after the treatment process is over.

Earlier in a statement, he stated that he would fly abroad for medical treatment soon and urged his fans to not converge here on his birthday, citing the Covid-19 pandemic. In the recent photos from the airport, he was seen in a wheelchair along with his family members.

Vijayakanth was staying away from the spotlight owing to his health problems. He was last seen in a cop film titled Virudhagiri. Besides acting in the 2010 film, he had also written and directed the film, which was apparently inspired by Hollywood hit Taken. Later, he made a cameo appearance in the 2015 film Sagaptham, which marked the acting debut of his son Shanmuga Pandian.
