South star Vijay Sethupathi has come to the rescue of supporting actor Thavasi, who has been diagnosed with cancer.
Over the last couple of days, pictures of Thavasi went viral on the Internet, wherein the actor can be seen in a very ill state. He has been affected by cancer so severely and has lost a lot of weight. The actor looked pale and unrecognisable in the viral pictures, which raised concern among netizens and other South actors.
Actor Vijay Sethupathi came forward and offered Rs 10 lakh to help for Thavasi’s medical treatment. Reportedly, actor Soundara Raja met Thavasi and handed over Sethupathi ’s offer and donated Rs 10,000 along with it.
A few days ago, a video of Thavasi asking for financial help for his cancer treatment went viral. “I have acted in films from Kizhakku Cheemayile (1993) to the latest Rajinikanth’s Annaatthe. I never thought that I would get such a disease,” Thavasi said in the video.
As per reports, actors Sivakarthikeyan and Soori have also offered to help with Thavasi’s medical bills. Thavasi played a small role in Sivakarthikeyan and Soori’s 2013 hit comedy film, Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam.
