Rajinikanth undergoes surgery

Indian actor Rajinikanth underwent a Carotid Artery revascularisation procedure on Friday and is “recovering well,” a statement from the Kauvery Hospital, Chennai, India read on Friday. He is likely to be discharged from the hospital in a few days.

Rajinikanth was hospitalised on Thursday after he experienced some giddiness. His publicist Riaz K Ahmed had said then, “It is a health check-up done routinely on a periodical basis. He is now in a private hospital for the check-up.”

Doctor Aravindan Selvaraj from Kauvery Hospital has now confirmed that Rajinikanth was advised Carotid Artery revascularization.

The latest news about Rajinikanth’s health comes days after the Thalaivar received the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award in Delhi. The 70-year old actor had also visited President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital.
