Earlier this month, Thalapathy Vijay headed to Gerogia for the shooting of his upcoming film, Thalapathy 65. He shot for the film in Georgia for about 20 days and returned to Chennai on April 25. Vijay was spotted at the Chennai International Airport with his luggage. A day after his arrival in Chennai, Vijay paid a visit to late actor Vivekh's house in Virugambakkam to offer his condolences to this wife and family. Vivekh and Vijay have acted in many films and their comedy have always worked well. Since Vijay was away from the city when Vivekh died, he decided to visit his house as soon as he arrived.
Vijay's publicist took to social media to confirm the same. To avoid media attention, Vijay visited Vivekh's house early in the morning. Actor Vivekh died on April 17 after suffering a massive cardiac arrest. He was resuscitated 45 minutes after his arrival at the hospital. Vivekh's untimely passing away came as a huge shock to his family members and the film fraternity. Thousands of people gathered at his house to pay last respects to him amid the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
