Tamil Vivek, 59, one of India’s most famous players, was vaccinated in front of the cameras last Thursday to break public prejudice. The actor collapsed and was taken to hospital two days later. Vivek’s cause of death was a heart attack.
Famous actor Tamil Vivek was vaccinated last Thursday, opting for a public hospital, although he could go to a private hospital to dispel public fears about the corona vaccine. The 59-year-old actor collapsed and died two days after being vaccinated.
Vivek fainted after expressing his discomfort and his family rushed him to the hospital, but despite all the interventions, he could not be saved. The cause of death was said to be a heart attack.
Actor Mansoor Ali Khan, who was unable to contain his nerves outside the hospital following Tamil’s death, said: “Stop the corona tests. No one will have a corona, we don’t even know what is in the vaccines”, he said, making anti-vaccine and anti-test rhetoric.
WHO IS TAMIL VIVEK?
Famous comedian Vivek has been publicly dubbed ‘Chinna Kalaivanar’ for her socially reformative dialogues in Tamil cinema. In 2009, he was awarded the Padma Shri Award, India’s fourth-highest civilian award, by the union government. Vivek, who was last seen in the Tamil version of the Indian film ‘Vicky Donor’ called Dharala Prabhu, was also involved in director Shankar’s new film ‘Indian 2’.
