Tamil superstar Rajinikanth was on Thursday admitted to a private hospital in Chennai. Though there was no official statement from the hospital, Rajinikanth’s wife Latha said the actor was admitted for a “routine check-up."

Tamil news outlets quoted Latha as saying that Rajinikanth was doing fine and that he came to hospital only for a check-up. The actor’s hospitalisation comes four days after he was conferred with Dadasaheb Palke award in New Delhi.

Hours later, V M Sudhakar, administrator of the All India Rajinikanth Fans Club, took to Twitter to say that Rajinikanth was doing fine. “Thalaivar ( #Rajinikanth ) is fine. Don't believe rumours," he said in a terse post

The actor, who underwent a kidney transplant in 2016 in the US, had pulled out of politics months before Tamil Nadu assembly elections in 2021 citing his ill-health and Covid-19 situation.

The actor was admitted to Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad in December 2020 following fluctuation in his blood pressure.
