With just some days to go for the release of superstar Rajinikanth’s magnum opus 2.0, his fans were in for a shock on Friday evening following a news report that the ‘thalaivar’ is unwell.
The report in a Tamil news portal said that Rajini was not keeping well and treatment was being provided to him at his Poes Garden residence itself.
Following this, his publicist Riaz Ahmed issued a clarification to the media houses and claimed that the superstar is fit and fine.
“There are rumours being spread regarding thalaivar superstar Rajinikanth’s health, stating that he has been hospitalised. There is no truth to this. Rajini sir is healthy and doing well. Therefore, I request you all to not spread the word further,” he said.
The reports of Rajinikanth’s ill-health spread like a wildfire and soon the fans went berserk. Well, however, this statement surely came as a comfort to his admirers.
A few days ago, Rajinikanth sent relief materials worth Rs 50 lakhs to the victims affected by the Gaja cyclone.
Rajinikanth’s 2.0 is all set to hit the theatres on November 29. The sci-fi film also stars Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead roles.
