CHENNAI: Reports of actor Chiyaan Vikram’s health condition spread like wildfire on Friday noon. It was widely said that the actor suffered a cardiac arrest and was rushed to a city hospital. This sent the Tamil cinema industry to shock as the actor was about to grace the Ponniyin Selvan teaser launch on Friday. However, sources close to the actor told DT Next, “Vikram sir felt a mild discomfort on Thursday and was in the hospital. Though he was in the ICU for a day for a thorough checkup and was shifted to normal ward on Friday morning. He will return home on Saturday. In fact, he will be attending the Cobra audio launch on Monday.”

Sources added that a partially clogged artery caused the discomfort so a stent has been placed as a precautionary measure. The actor was not seen at the Ponniyin Selvan audio launch that took place in Chennai on Friday. “We had informed the makers of Ponniyin Selvan on Thursday that he will be unable to attend the event and will be on rest for a couple of days. Reports are normal and he is doing fine.” The actor will be seen playing Aditya Karikalan in the Mani Ratnam directorial.

The actor also has Cobra, and Dhruva Natchathiram lined up for release.
