Ace actor Rajinikanth returned to Chennai from his annual health check-up over the weekend. He was welcomed by fans with chants of 'Thalaivaa' at the airport as he stepped out to board his car. The actor, along with his daughter Aishwarya left for the US on June 26, for his routine health check-up. While he could not make the trip last year, he recently completed shooting for his upcoming Tamil film 'Annaatthe', he decided to take a break and get his routine.

Rajinikanth arrived at Chennai airport in the early hours of Friday, and stepped out to board his car. He was welcomed by a group of his fans with chants of 'Thalaivaa'. Many even referred to him as their God. Rajinikanth’s 'Annaatthe' is gearing up for release this Diwali festival. Tipped to be a rural drama, the film also stars Keerthy Suresh, Meena and Khushbu Sundar in key roles. The film was officially launched in 2019 December in Chennai in a low-key affair.

The veteran actor was last seen on screen in AR Murugadoss' 'Darbar'. After the film bombed at the box office, the actor agreed to take a 50 per cent cut for the movie. His remuneration was reduced from an estimated £11.8 million for 'Darbar' to £5.8 million for 'Annaatthe'.
