Tamil Superstar Rajnikanth has been admitted to Apollo Hospitals facility at Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad on Friday morning. Rajni, who had been shooting for his forthcoming film Annatthe for the last ten days here, is found to be having fluctuations in blood pressure.

The film's shooting was suspended on Wednesday after a few crew members were tested positive for Covid-19.

"Though he did not have any symptoms of Covid-19, his blood pressure shows severe fluctuations and needed further evaluation," an Apollo Hospitals bulletin has said.

"He is being monitored closely, and medications to control his blood pressure are being given. He will remain in the hospital tonight and undergo further investigations on Saturday," the bulletin said.

"He is stable and is resting. His family and treating doctors have requested all well-wishers to avoid visiting the hospital as he cannot meet any visitors. His daughter is with him," it said.

Governor wishes a speedy recovery

Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan spoke to the doctors and wished Rajnikanth speedy recovery.

Rajnikanth was tested negative for Covid-19 on December 22. "Since then, he isolated himself and has been monitored closely.

Apart from fluctuating blood pressure and exhaustion, he doesn't have any other symptoms and is haemodynamically stable (stable blood pressure and heart rate)," it said.

The film actor is expected to launch a political party towards the end of the year-end.
