Never before the public waited with anxiety at the exit from the hospital of any VIP (in any field) in the distant past. People, fans, relatives and well-wishers of superstar Rajnikanth simply can’t digest the fact that he had fallen ‘ill’ and was recuperating at the Isabel Hospital, Chennai. To them, Rajini is always a healthy, happy and carefree individual sans any visible illness which required hospitalization. In fact, this had been the case for the past three decades.
It, therefore, was nothing less than shocking to them to see Rajnikanth getting admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Hospital. That this happened within days of Rajnikanth launching his latest film ‘Raana’ made matters even worse for the fans, who could never get enough of the 61-year old superstar. It was with much relief that they greeted Rajini’s discharge from the hospital in the afternoon today (11th May).
Sources at the hospital say that Rajnikanth has fully recovered from breathing trouble, cold and cough that had been troubling him for the past few days. Still, he needed to have bed-rest for some days, it was informed. It is now reported that during his stay at the hospital, Rajnikanth took ‘permission’ from the team of doctors attending to him and visited his favourite Kalikaambal Temple at Parry’s Corner in Chennai and returned back to the hospital.
Rajnikanth’s fans in and outside the country had conducted special prayers, ‘yagnas’ and other chores to their respective Gods and prayed for the superstar’s recuperation and recovery from the illness.
