About Meera’s death
Vijay Antony and Fatima’s daughter was reportedly found dead in her room at around 3 am on September 19. The actor and music composer rushed her to a nearby private hospital, where she was declared dead on arrival. A few days after her death, Vijay issued an emotional statement on social media. In the post written in Tamil, Vijay Antony spoke at length about his daughter.
The statement in Tamil loosely translated as, “My daughter Meera is such an affectionate and brave girl. She is now in a better and peaceful place where there won’t be caste, creed, money, jealousy, pain. She is still talking to me. I have died along with her. I have started spending time with her now. Whatever good deeds that I will be doing henceforth on behalf of her, will be initiated by her.” Fatima broke down in tears at the funeral as she bid farewell to her daughter, as per local media house Thanthi TV. She reportedly said, “I carried you in the womb… You could have said a word to me.”
