Megastar Rajinikanth, who was admitted to Kauvery Hospital in Chennai on Thursday evening for a routine check-up, continues to be in the hospital. The superstar underwent a cartoid artery revascularisation procedure after he complained of giddiness. The hospital released a statement updating fans about his discharge and said, "Rajinikanth was admitted following an episode of giddiness. He was thoroughly evaluated & was advised to undergo Cartoid Artery revascularisation. Procedure was performed successfully today. He is likely to be discharged from the hospital after few days"
"He was thoroughly evaluated by the expert panel of doctors and was advised to undergo Carotid Artery Revascularisation, said Dr Aravindan Selvaraj, co-founder and Executive Director, in a statement.
Earlier, in December 2020, the star had been admitted to the Apollo hospital, Hyderabad, due to fluctuating blood pressure and exhaustion. Last year, Rajinikanth decided against taking a much-awaited political plunge citing his health condition. At that time Rajinikanth said the doctors had advised him that fluctuating blood pressure would affect his transplanted kidney.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth, who was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award on Thursday, had tweeted that he had watched his yet-to-be released movie 'Annatthe' with his grandson on Wednesday.
