It’s not confirmed as yet but reports emanating from Singapore say that superstar Rajnikanth has been ‘strongly advised’ by the doctors not to indulge in risky ‘stunt sequences’ while he starts shooting for his upcoming film ‘Raana’ in the near future. Rajnikanth has been advised to make use of a ‘duplicate’ in such sequences.
On the day ‘Raana‘ was launched (on 29th April), Rajnikanth fell ill and spent two stints at two leading hospitals in Chennai before being air-lifted to Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital, said to be the best in the Asian continent for treatment of kidney-related ailments. Rajnikanth was discharged from the hospital two weeks ago and has been taking ‘complete rest’ in Singapore ever since.
Rajnikanth‘s wife Latha Rajnikanth and son-in-law Dhanush, who have since returned to Chennai, have informed the media that Rajnikanth is doing ‘fine’ and would be back in Chennai very soon. Rajnikanth is expected to land in Chennai within a fortnight’s time and is likely to take part in the shooting of ‘Raana‘ either from August or September.
It’s in this backdrop that he has been advised not to strain his body vis-a-vis action sequences. He has been told not to insist on doing all the action sequences himself and instead has been ‘advised’ to make use of a duplicate in such sequences. Rajnikanth has made use of ‘duplicate’ many times in the past for filming many sequences in his earlier films.
Either way, it’s a fact that the audience and the star’s fans are waiting with bated breath for Rajnikanth to get into ‘shooting mode’ sooner than later!
