South Indian actor Rajnikanth, who has been hospitalised for respiratory infection, is recovering well and his condition is stable.
On April 29th, the Endhiran (Robot) star was shooting for his upcoming film Rana with Deepika Padukone, when he was admitted to the hospital after complaining of fever and fatigue. He was discharged the same day, only to be re-admitted on May 4 for allergic bronchitis and viral fever.
“Rajnikanth, admitted to Sri Ramachandra Medical University on May 13 for respiratory and gastro intestinal problems for which he had undergone relevant investigations, is receiving appropriate and comprehensive treatment. His vital parameters are stable,” an SRMU release said. The actor is spending his time with his family members, it added.
Police and hospital security staff had to cordon off the main block of the hospital as the 61-year-old star’s supporters were shouting slogans outside. He is likely to be in hospital for three more days and has been advised complete rest for at least a month.
