Actor-politician Vijayakant recently had his toes amputated at a private hospital in Chennai due to diabetes. The DMDK chief is currently recovering from the surgery and is likely to be discharged in two days.

Apart from his followers, many from the film industry and political circle have wished Captain a speedy recovery.

Rajinikanth tweeted, “I pray to the Almighty that my good friend Vijayakant will soon recover and roar back as the Captain he is.”

Similarly, Sathyaraj, who has been a long-time friend of Vijayakant, also wished him through a video message.

In a press release, the DMDK party said, “Vijayakant had been suffering from diabetes for a long time, the high diabetic level hindered the blood flow on his toe on the right leg. Hence, as per the suggestion of the doctors, his toe was amputated. Vijayakant will return home in a day or two.”
