Superstar Rajinikanth is on cloud nine as he was honoured with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award by the Indian government. Earlier this year, Rajinikanth announced that he wouldn't be able to venture into politics due to his ill health and will continue acting. In December 2020, while shooting for Annaatthe, Rajinikanth was hospitalised in Hyderabad due to fluctuating blood pressure. He recovered and then doctors who treated him had advised him not to take in too much pressure and advised complete rest.
Last month, Rajinikanth resumed the shooting of Annaatthe at a private studio in Chennai. After wrapping up the Chennai schedule, Rajinikanth has now geared up for the Hyderabad schedule. On April 8, Rajinikanth went to Hyderabad on a chartered flight to join the shooting of Annaatthe. A video of Rajinikanth waving to the crowd outside the Chennai airport is doing the rounds on social media. The current schedule will take place at the Ramoji Rao Film City. Directed by Siruthai Siva, Annaatthe stars Nayanthara, Keerthy Suresh, Meena, Khushbu, Prakash Raj and Soori in supporting roles. The film will release on November 4, 2021.
