Superstar Rajinikanth was on Friday admitted to Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad as he was suffering from severe blood pressure fluctuations, the hospital said in a statement. He was shooting for a movie there for the past 10 days and had isolated himself and is being monitored closely after a few people on the sets tested COVID-19 positive. The actor, however, tested negative. “Mr Rajinikanth has been admitted in the hospital today in the morning…Though he did not have any symptoms of COVID-19, his BP showed severe fluctuations and needed further evaluation for which he has been admitted to the hospital,” Apollo Hospitals said.
He will be investigated and monitored closely in the hospital till his BP settles down before being discharged, it said. Apart from fluctuating blood pressure and exhaustion, he does not have any other symptoms and is “hemodynamically” stable, the statement said.
