Rajinikanth better, decision tomorrow on discharge: Hospital

Star actor and politician Rajinikanth, who was admitted to a hospital in Hyderabad on Friday over “severe fluctuations” in his blood pressure, is “progressing well”, a medical bulletin said this morning.

After his test results and his blood pressure, doctors will take a call tomorrow on his discharge.

The 70-year-old megastar was in Hyderabad for his film “Annathe” but the shoot was cancelled earlier this week after four members of the crew tested positive for coronavirus. Rajinikanth had tested negative for Covid on Tuesday, Apollo Hyderabad said.

“Rajinikanth who was admitted yesterday is progressing well. He had an uneventful night and his blood pressure is still on the higher side although under better control than yesterday. His investigations have not revealed anything alarming so far. He is scheduled for a further set of investigations today, reports of which will be available by today evening,” this morning’s statement by the Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad, read.

Later in the evening, the hospital said, “Mr Rajinikanth is stable. Reports of some of the investigations done today have come and there is nothing alarming. A few more reports are awaited. Based on the reports of remaining investigations and his blood pressure status overnight a call will be taken tomorrow morning on his discharge from the hospital.”
