Great news for superstar Rajinikanth’s fans all over the globe as the ailing star is likely to be discharged from the hospital tomorrow. Rajini was admitted to the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore, said to be the best in Asia to treat kidney-related ailments, more than a fortnight ago after spending two stints at a couple of hospitals in Chennai.
The news about the discharge was confirmed Rajini’s son-in-law and actor Dhanush, who is present with the superstar in Singapore. Dhanush, his wife Aishwarya, two sons, Soundarya Rajinikanth and Latha Rajinikanth are presently staying at a service apartment situated close to the premises of the Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
As Dhanush continues to stay in Singapore, the audio-launch of his upcoming film ‘Venghai’ was held in the city yesterday in his absence. The function, which was planned to be a grand affair, was later held in a simple manner. Reports say that Rajini spoke to director K.S. Ravikumar, the director of his upcoming film ‘Rana’, over phone for close to 30 minutes.
Ravikumar couldn’t be contacted as he was busy with the elections to elect office-bearers of the Directors’ Association. Confirming Rajini’s tele-chat with Ravikumar, Dhanush said that it’s highly likely that the shooting of Rana would be re-started in London in late August. Meanwhile, Ravikumar is said to have told all the artistes and technicians of ‘Rana’ that they are free to commit themselves to other films as it would take ‘some more time’ to re-start the shooting schedule of ‘Rana’.
