MRI Scan report, what it reads
Rajinikanth is said to have been diagnosed with an infraction, a condition caused by obstruction of the blood supply to an organ or region of tissue, typically by a thrombus or embolus. A well-placed source described this condition as “Necrosis caused due to inadequate blood supply to the affected area. It may be caused by artery blockages, rupture, mechanical compression, or vasoconstriction.
Watched Annaatthe with grandson Ved
Rajinikanth’s ill-health reports came just hours after the actor left an emotional voice note on his daughter Soundarya’s new social media platform, where he said, “I watched Annaatthe with Latha, Aishwarya, Soundarya, Vishagan, Ved, Linga and Yatra along with my in laws Vanangamudi and Usha Vanangamudi. Ved in particular wanted to sit next to me and catch the show. After watching the film, he gave me a tight hug for a good three to four minutes and said ‘I am happy thathu’. He calls me thathu when he is in a happy mood. This is the first time we all watched a show together. I thanked Ved and came out of the theatre. To my surprise Kalanithi Maaran was waiting outside and received me with a smile. Despite his busy schedule he made it a point to be there, which was indeed overwhelming.”
