Actor Vijay met the family members of Unnikrishnan, a fan who passed away in Kerala last week. Unnikrishnan’s family was flown over to Coimbatore where the actor was scheduled to attend a meeting, and was handed a cheque for Rs 3 lakhs. Vijay is also said to have assured the family to “not worry about the future” and had also promised to take care of them.
The actor was accompanied by Shibu Thameens, distributor of Kaththi in Kerala and members of the star’s fan association from the state.
Vijay fans in Alappuzha, Ernakulam are also fundraising to help the bereaved family.
A few days ago, Unnikrishnan was attempting to perform paalabhishekam for a cutout of Vijay in Vadakkanchery when he suffered a fall. Despite immediate medical help, he could not be saved. The actor had earlier sent a letter condoling his death.
