Superstar Rajinikanth has gone to The United States for some medical tests and he will be back in Tamil Nadu ahead of the release of his Tamil film Kabali, his family member said.
"He has gone for (medical) test to USA. He will be back before the release of the movie (Kabali) which has been scheduled for July 15," Rajinikanth's elder brother, Sathyanarayana told reporters here.
Earlier, he offered prayers at the Lord Shiva temple here, and said that his family was indebted to people for their love and affection for the actor.
"The film is good," he said on a brief remark on Kabali adding that his brother "Rajinikanth is doing well."
Earlier this month, some 'rumours' about the actor's health had caused concern among his fans, but his publicist had then said that Rajinikanth was "taking rest in the US."
