The shooting of Superstar Rajinikanth’s next mega budget offering ‘Rana‘ started at AVM Studios, Chennai last Friday in the presence of popular film personalities. The day started off fine. After finishing one shot for the mahurat, the 61-year-old star felt uneasy and started throwing and was rushed for medical attention to Isabella Hospital, Chennai. After primary treatment, he was advised a one week rest by the doctors.
Though dehydration was being told the reason for his illness, the real reason behind is coming into limelight now. A source close to the actor said, the main reason for the exhaustion is because Rajini’s sudden giving up of alcohol consumption. On the day of mahurut, Rajnikanth was feeling a strange kind of illness, which usually happens in those, who give up alcohol consumption suddenly.
“Rajini Sir came to the mahurat on time. But he looked pretty off colour. For the past 30 years, Rajinikanth has been a heavy boozer and used to drink eight to nine pegs of whisky in single sitting. However on persuasion of his family members and his Himalayan guru, he quit drinking a couple of months ago. Now he doesn’t touch a drop of alcohol. And as it happens with all heavy drinkers who give up, he gets a bit restless sometimes.”, the source added.
Let’s wish Rajini bounces back in the pink of health as soon as possible.
