Rajinikanth undergoes surgery, to be discharged in a few days

Chennai: Megastar Rajinikanth successfully underwent a surgical procedure called Carotid Artery Revascularisation at a hospital here. The actor is recovering well and is likely to be discharged in a few days, said a top official of the Kauvery Hospital.

Rajinikanth was admitted to Kauvery Hospital following an episode of giddiness.

“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.

Rajinikanth, who was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, had tweeted that he had watched his yet-to-be released movie ‘Annatthe’ with his grandson.

Last year, Rajinikanth decided against taking a much-awaited political plunge citing his health condition.
