Superstar Rajinikanth shared his sentiments with reporters after paying tribute to the late Vijayakanth, whose final rites took place at the Island Grounds. Expressing his grief, Rajinikanth stated, “I was filming in Kanyakumari. I was supposed to come yesterday. It was very tough. There's a lot to say about Vijayakanth. He was the epitome of friendship. Once someone befriended him, they could never forget him."

Rajinikanth further said, “He was often angry with friends, politicians, and the media, but no one could ever be angry with him. There was always a reason behind Vijayakanth's anger. Once you get close to Vijayakanth, everyone becomes devoted to his love. He was a symbol of courage and valor. 'Captain' was an apt name for Vijayakanth."

Earlier, at the airport, Rajinikanth expressed, “The loss of my dear friend Vijayakanth is a great misfortune. He was a man of incredible mental strength. We all hoped he would recover. But recently, at the DMDK general council meeting, when I saw him, my hope diminished. If he had remained healthy, he would have been a great force in Tamil politics and done a lot of good for the Tamil people. The Tamil people have lost that blessing.”

The actor, who was filming for the movie Vettaiyan, immediately halted the shooting and headed to Chennai to pay his respects to Vijayakanth.
