The news of Vijay Antony's daughter Meera passing away has reverberated throughout the entertainment industry, prompting numerous celebrities to express their condolences to the music composer and actor via social media. Some have even made personal visits to stand by the star during this challenging period.

The 16-year-old was found hanging in her Teynampet residence in the early hours of September 19 and was immediately transported to a city hospital, where doctors pronounced her 'brought dead.' A case of unnatural death has been filed, and an investigation is currently underway. Meera was a 12th-grade student at a private school, and the police will reportedly question her friends and family.

"No matter how painful life gets, or the kind of difficulties you have to go through, never commit suicide. It is heartbreaking for the children. My father took his own life when I was 7 and my sister was 5. I have seen how difficult it was for my mother after that and the hardships she has gone through," Vijay was quoted as saying in an old interview. The video clipping has been doing the rounds on social media.

Condolences have poured in from fans and members of the film fraternity.
