Popular villain actor and ‘Bigg Boss 2’ participant Ponnambalam was recently admitted in a hospital in Adyar, Chennai, for a kidney-related problem. It is said his condition is stable now and he is under the observation of doctors.
Kamal Haasan, who came to know about the situation of Ponnambalam, has offered help to him. The actor-politician has come forward to sponsor the education expenses of Ponnambalam’s children.
It is said Kamal has been calling up and speaking to the actor everyday and keeping track of his progress. It is to be noted that Kamal and Ponnambalam had acted with Kamal in films such as ‘Apoorva Sagodharargal’ and ‘Michael Madana Kama Rajan’.
Ponnambalam’s big break arrived in the form of K S Ravikumar-directed ‘Nattamai’, in which the former played a key role. The film had Sarathkumar as protagonist. Last year, Ponnambalam was seen in Jayam Ravi-starrer ‘Comaali’.
