“We were travelling in sir’s charted flight for discussion as he was busy campaigning for his party in the election. At that time, he was keeping his one leg on a stool and he was in too much pain due to his uninterrupted campaign. He then showed the leg to me, No exaggeration, his leg looked like a beetroot. He said that a rod was placed in his leg. After three months, he said it was removed. It’s been a routine for him and I asked sir whether I could use it” said Lokesh Kanagaraj about how the mass scene evolved.
