Rajinikanth admitted to hospital for routine checkup

Superstar Rajinikanth has been admitted to Kauvery Hospital in Chennai. The actor has been taken to the hospital for ‘a routine checkup’ as per his family members.

Rajinikanth was recently in Delhi where he was conferred with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award at a ceremony.

“He is undergoing tests. He is fine and it’s just a regular check-up,” sources said.

A few reports claimed that Rajinikanth has been diagnosed with Infarct. It is a tissue death (necrosis) due to inadequate blood supply to the affected area. It may be caused by artery blockages, rupture, mechanical compression, or vasoconstriction. The resulting lesion is referred to as an infarct.

It is said that there is nothing to worry as it can be completely treated.

The news of his health comes just a day after the actor released the trailer of his upcoming film Annaatthe. The film also stars Nayanthara, Keerthy Suresh and Kushboo.

The movie is directed by Siruthai Siva and is funded by Sun Picture.
