Vivek was admitted to the ICU on Friday morning after suffering a heart attack. And today (Saturday) in the morning he passed away following a cardiac arrest.
He was admitted on Friday and almost immediately it was rumored that he fell sick after receiving the covid-19 vaccination which led Tamil Health department’s intervention to discard the false rumors. Denying any link between the vaccine shot and his cardiac arrest, state secretary J. Radhakrishnan said around 830 people were given covaxin’s jab on Thursday at the same hospital and all of them were fine.
Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami conveyed his condolences. Also, the moment this news emerged online, celebrities all over the industry poured in their condolences and tributes.
Vivek started his career in the 1980’s and had a stronghold over the 90’s tamil cinema. He was last seen in Dharala Prabhu, a tamil remake of the hindi film Vicky Donor.
Apart from this some people confused Actor Vivek’s demise to that of Vivek Oberoi’s to which Vivek Oberoi had to clarify he is well and doing just fine at his home in mumbai.
