Sarathkumar has shared screen space with Vijayakanth in six Tamil films, and they both share good friendship. Even though they travel on a different path in politics they have good respect for each other.
Taking to his social networking page, Sarathkumar posted in Tamil, which translates to, “Following the news that my dear friend Mr. Vijayakant was admitted to the hospital today due to ill health, I contacted DMDK Deputy Secretary Mr. LK Sudeesh and enquired about his well being. The captain was admitted to the hospital for their routine check-up and it is gratifying that Sudesh said he was fine.”
