Nearly 10 days ago, Rajinikanth and his wife Latha were spotted at the Chennai International Airport, while they were on their way to the US. Rajinikanth had to take this trip during the novel coronavirus pandemic because he had to get his routine medical health check-up. Back in 2016, Rajinikanth had to undergo a kidney transplant surgery at Mayo Clinic in the US. Since then he has been touring back and forth to the US to get his health checked. The recent trip is also a follow-up check-up with his doctors in the Mayo Clinic.
A few days ago, we saw a photo of Rajinikanth steppin outside of the Mayo Clinic along with his daughter Aishwarya Dhanush circulating on social media. After the health check-up, lyricist Vairamuthu is said to have spoken to Rajinikanth. He also took to social media to share an update regarding Rajinikanth's health to the actor's ardent fans. Vairamuthu wrote, "Rajini called from the US. He said that his health check-up went well. I was happy to hear that. I could sense his good health and confidence in his voice. I am putting out this tweet for his fans." Rajinikanth is expected to return to Chennai in a few days.
