Rajinikanth was shifted from the private ward to the ICU of Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre on Wednesday, sparking the rumour that his condition may be deteriorating. But the doctors at the SRMC, and Rajinikanth’s wife say the superstar is ‘stable’.
Speaking to reporters outside the hospital, Rajinikanth’s wife Latha said: “He is doing well, he is fine. It was an infection that has created an imbalance. He has been moved to ICU only to give more protection and give proper treatment because it's a sterile area.”
Latha also dismissed the rumours that Rajinikanth’s health was declining.
“It was an infection that created an imbalance. It started with stomach and respiratory infection is also there... he is fine now,” she added.
The doctors at SRMC also said that Rajinikanth is ‘hale and hearty’ and that he had a normal meal today.
Fans who had gathered outside the hospital were relieved after the assurance from the doctors. Many fans have been praying and performing religious rituals for the good health of Rajinikanth.
