The Thalaivar is back. After spending over six weeks in Singapore for treatment of kidney-related ailments, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth is home again in Chennai. The superstar cheerfully arrived in his trademark style, waving to hundreds of fans gathered at the airport.
Rajinikanth and his family touched down at Chennai Airport last night. Rajini's wife Latha and daughters Aishwarya Dhanush and Soundarya accompanied the superstar from Singapore.
The CISF at the Chennai Airport could not control the burgeoning fans. It was a free for all as hundreds of fans barged into the Arrival Terminal for a glance of their superstar. All this despite every effort on the part of the family to keep the actual arrival details a secret.
This is what some excited fans told NDTV: "He is our God and we are so lucky to see him after two months. Our leader please come for a corruption free society."
"The last two months were so difficult for fans as Rajini was moved to a hospital..." "Next the superstar is going to rock in Rana."
"Rajinikanth should speak to the fans through television." You can send your wishes to Rajinikanth here.
After being discharged from hospital in Singapore on June 15, the superstar had stayed back to recuperate. The actor's son-in-law, Dhanush, had reassured fans, tweeting: "Superstar discharged from hospital. He has recovered completely and taking rest. Soon national award celebrations :) god bless"
Hours after being discharged from hospital in Singapore, the actor called Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalithaa. He congratulated the AIADMK chief on her massive victory in the state elections. He also told her he would return soon to India.
The next day Rajinikanth consoled DMK President M Karunanidhi about being voted out as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. "You've seen many ups and downs. Don't worry about anything. Take care of your health," Rajinikanth is reported to have said.
Rajini had acknowledged in a recent letter to his fans that it was their prayers and love which saved him.
After suffering from exhaustion on April 29, the first day of the shoot of his period flick 'Rana', the actor was hospitalised twice. He was flown to Singapore in the last week of May for treatment of reported kidney-related ailments.
While euphoric fans celebrate the Thalaivar's return, unconfirmed reports say the superstar will be back on the sets of Rana in the next two months.
