Rajinikanth hospitalised, recovering well

Chennai: Tamil superstar Rajnikanth, who was hospitalised for allergic bronchitis and high fever, is recuperating well and has been advised rest for a couple of days.

Aishwarya, Rajnikanth's daughter and wife of actor Dhanush, said her father was "fine".

She said doctors had advised him rest and he would be under observation for two days at the Isabelle Hospital in Chennai, where he was admitted on Wednesday after he complained of breathlessness.

Doctors, who have prohibited visitors meeting the actor, said he was "doing well" and required rest.

This was the second time in a week that he had been hospitalised. On April 29, last Friday, the actor was admitted to the same hospital briefly for exhaustion and dehydration. He was discharged the same day.

Rajinikanth is currently shooting for his latest film 'Rana', in which he plays a triple role. The film, in which he is paired opposite Bollywood heroine, Deepika Padukone, went on the floors the day Rajini was first hospitalised.

His millions of fans all over are praying for a speedy recovery across social networking sites. (Read: Fans pray for Rajini)
