A fan of superstar Rajinikanth attempted to commit suicide in order to donate his kidneys to the ailing superstar. Ironically, the fan was unaware that the kidneys would become non-functional after his demise and as such, his act of committing ‘suicide’ would not be beneficial in serving his purpose!
The incident occurred in Coimbatore, which has a huge fan-following for Rajini. The 61-year old superstar is presently admitted to the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore, said to be the best of its kind in the Asian continent for treating kidney-related ailments. Rajini is said to be making rapid progress and there are even rumours that he might return to normalcy soon.
Rajini’s fans have been praying to the various Gods to put their matinee idol back to normalcy. Raja Arockiyasami of Sundarapuram in Kovai, a die-hard Rajini fan and an office-bearer of the local Rajinikanth Fans’ Club, was reportedly disturbed by news reports saying that Rajini had to undergo ‘kidney transplantation’.
He then took an over-dose of sleeping pills and lost his consciousness. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was treated and is now said to be out of danger. Naively, he says that he attempted ‘suicide’ mainly to donate his kidney(s) to his Thalaivar!
