A photo of superstar Rajinikanth from the United States has gone viral over the internet. In the picture, he is seen outside the Mayo Clinic, sporting a casual look. If media reports are to be believed, Rajini is in the US to get his general health check-up done. He is expected to undergo a few tests there in the next few weeks and will return to India on July 8.
Earlier this year, the actor was honoured with the 51st Dadasaheb Phalke award. He had taken to Twitter to express his gratitude. He wrote, “I wholeheartedly thank the central government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for conferring me Dadasaheb Phalke Award, the highest award in the Indian Film Industry.”
He added, “I thank my bus driver and friend Raj Bahadur who discovered my acting talent and encouraged me, my brother Sathyanarayana Rao Gaekwad who sacrificed a lot while we were struggling in poverty to make me an actor, my guru K Balachander for creating ‘the Rajinikanth.’ I also thank my directors, producers, distributors, technicians, theatre owners, media, and Tamil people who have given me life. I dedicate this award to my fans around the world. I thank Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, Deputy Chief Minister O Pannerselvam, opposition leader and my friend MK Stalin, my friend Kamal Haasan, other state and central leaders, industry friends, and my well-wishers. Long Live Tamils, May Tamil Nadu prosper, Jai Hind!”
On the work front, Rajini finished the shoot of his upcoming film 'Annaatthe'. It also stars Khusbu, Nayanthara, Keerthy Suresh, Jackie Shroff, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj, and Vela Ramamoorthy.
