Veteran Tamil actor Karthik has been admitted to a hospital in Adyar, Chennai after he developed breathing issues on March 20, 2021 (Saturday). For the unversed, the Thee Ivan actor was campaigning for the BJP-AIADMK alliance in the city. He was super busy with election work and due to a lot of work pressure, he started facing trouble while breathing.
