The shooting of superstar Rajnikanth’s ‘Raana’ was launched at a glittering function last Friday. Unfortunately, Rajnikanth fell ill on the same afternoon and had to be hospitalized. Though he has been discharged from the Hospital, sources close to him say that he has been advised ‘some’ rest and won’t start shooting till next Friday.
After the muhurat, Rajnikanth & Deepika Padukone shot for a duet sequence for some time when Rajnikanth complained of stomach-ache and then vomited incessantly. He was then rushed to the Isabel Hospital in Mylapore where he was treated for ‘indigestion’.
Dr. Krishnamurthy of Isabel Hospital said that Rajnikanth was feeling fine after the treatment and added that his blood pressure, pulse and breathing were just perfect. After advising him to rest completely for a few days, the doctors discharged him from the hospital.
The hospitalization of Rajnikanth, seen as a very healthy individual, sent anxious waves among his fans and well-wishers who thronged the Hospital. They dispersed from the Hospital only after Rajnikanth was discharged. K.S Ravikumar, the director, said that Rajini must have felt exhausted as he had been involved in the script-making of the film for the past many days and invited many VIPs over phone for the launch which made him keep awake around midnight the previous day.
