Veteran folk singer and actress Paravai Muniyamma who shot to fame with the Vikram starrer Dhool in 2003 for her ‘Singam Pola Nadanthu Varaan…’ song, has currently been admitted to Velammal Hospital, Madurai owing to deterioration in her health condition. Unfortunately, rumours that the actress had passed away were widespread after the photos of actor Abi Saravanan and Muniyamma’s meeting spread on social media.
To clarify that these were rumours, the hospital sent out a press release which stated that the actress is keeping well and that the doctors have been providing her care. She is reportedly responding to the treatment well and will soon recover. The medical expenses are reportedly being taken care of by the hospital management.
She was also hospitalised back in 2015 and received support from many actors including Dhanush, Sivakarthikeyan and then Nadigar Sangam president R Sarathkumar who financed her treatment. Late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa too had facilitated the opening of a fixed deposit account worth 6 lakhs in Muniyamma’s name.
The actress was last seen in director Jaison’s horror-drama Sathura Adi 3500 (2017).
