Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, hospitalised in Chennai for four weeks for respiratory infection, will be flown to Singapore on Friday night for “rejuvenation and better health care,” his family said.
Rajinikanth’s wife, Latha, said his organs were “normal” and pleaded that his health “not be sensationalised.”
She also said there was no need for the fans to panic and insisted that the Singapore trip has nothing to “undermine Indian doctors.”
Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwarya said the actor will be travelling to Singapore like “any other normal passenger as his vitals are all stable.”
“He is being taken to Singapore because of the fluid collection in his body and for rejuvenation. There has been a lot of media speculation here, sensationalising the whole news. He would like a little bit of privacy with his family.
“He is so adored and is a part of every household here that people get agitated hearing something which is not true. It is very saddening for the family,” she added.
The ‘Endhiran’ star suffered from exhaustion on April 29, the first day of the shoot of his latest venture ‘Raana’ and was admitted to the Isabel Hospital here.
He was discharged the same day only to be readmitted there on May 4 for allergic bronchitis and viral fever.
Since May 13, he is undergoing treatment at the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre for respiratory infection and other problems. He was shifted to private ward on Sunday last after being in the intensive care unit.
