The news of Superstar Rajnikanth getting ill spread like a wildfire which bothered Thalaiva fans big time. Rajnikanth completed Kabali as well as Robot 2.0 shoots almost simultaneously and recently fled to USA along with his family. This led to the speculations that Rajini has a serious health issue and that is why, he is undergoing kidney transplantation in the US. But his brother Satyanarayana’s official clarification later put an end to all the rumors.
However the actual reason behind Rajini falling ill was that he worked for two different films in different hostile locations and that too for Robo 2.0, Rajini wore a 45kg costume every day and shot in the scorching heat for days together. Given his age and health condition, this continuous strain led to sickness. As a part of an extensive health checkup, Rajini flew to the US and is currently hale and healthy.
Anyways the Superstar is expected to be back in India before Kabali’s release on the 29th of July as per the latest schedule.
