Anitha’s death – the student who committed suicide distressed over being unable to secure a medical seat — garnered a lot of attention and protests. Rajinikanth tweeted, Suriya wrote a heartfelt note and Kamal Haasan condemned the central government over NEET. Actor Vijay, paid a visit this morning to Anitha’s home in Ariyalur.
A source close to the actor said, “He will not discuss certain things with his assistants. He went on his own and did not want media attention. Somehow pictures are making the rounds online. Taking some time off from Mersal’s dubbing, he travelled to Ariyalur to meet Anitha’s parents. He gave his condolences to Anitha’s father and left after spending some time with the family. He is expected to return to Chennai in the evening.”
Last time, during the Jallikattu protest in Marina, he went and joined the protest in disguise.
