Rajinikanth's much-publicized movie Rana has temporarily been shelved, as the actor has to be in bed rest for at least six months. His family sources have said that they are more concerned about the actor's health and their first priority is the superstar's health.
Soundarya Rajinikanth, who is one of the producers of Rana, has told a leading tabloid that they are not thinking about the proposed project and it will be rescheduled once Rajinikanth is back to normal. Sources say that the actor will have to be in complete rest and obviously the movie has to be postponed.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth, who was admitted at the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre last week for a recurrent respiratory infection and gastrointestinal problems, underwent a minor lung surgery yesterday. Hospital sources say that the actor is cheerful and his condition is stable. But they have advised him to take complete bed rest and also have restricted the visitors from meeting the actor.
Rajini was hospitalised on the muhurat day of Rana due to allergic bronchitis and viral fever and discharged on the same day. But he was admitted again at the same hospital after Rajinikanth complained of uneasiness in breathing.
However, KS Ravikumar has already shot a song on Deepika Padukone, when she was in Chennai. The director has been to Thailand and soon he will be going to London to plan the shooting schedules.
