New Delhi: The Thalaivar is back.
After spending over six weeks in Singapore for treatment of kidney-related ailments, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth is home again in Chennai.
The superstar and his family touched down at Chennai Airport. Rajini’s wife Latha and daughters Aishwarya Dhanush and Soundarya accompanied the superstar from Singapore.
After being discharged from hospital in Singapore on June 15, the superstar had stayed back to recuperate. The actor’s son-in-law, Dhanush, had reassured fans, tweeting: “Superstar discharged from hospital. He has recovered completely and taking rest. Soon national award celebrations 🙂 god bless”
Hours after being discharged from hospital in Singapore, the actor called Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalithaa. He congratulated the AIADMK chief on her massive victory in the state elections. He also told her he would return soon to India.
The next day Rajinikanth consoled DMK President M Karunanidhi about being voted out as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. “You’ve seen many ups and downs. Don’t worry about anything. Take care of your health,” Rajinikanth is reported to have said.
Actual details of the superstar’s return to Chennai were kept a secret for fear that fans would throng the airport. Though the actor’s family remained tight-lipped about the star’s return, airport sources said flight tickets had been blocked for him and family members for Wednesday in an international carrier.
Rajini had acknowledged in a recent letter to his fans that it was their prayers and love which saved him.
After suffering from exhaustion on April 29, the first day of the shoot of his period flick ‘Rana’, the actor was hospitalised twice. He was flown to Singapore in the last week of May for treatment of reported kidney-related ailments.
While euphoric fans celebrate the Thalaivar’s return, unconfirmed reports say the superstar will be back on the sets of Rana in the next two months.
