Superstar Rajinikanth, who was on a month-long US vacation along with his daughter Aishwarya R Dhanush, returned to India on Sunday (July 24).
"Rajinikanth sir and his daughter Aishwarya returned to Chennai earlier this evening. He was welcomed by hordes of fans at the airport. From the first week of August, he will resume work on his Tamil film '2.o'," a source close to the 65-year-old star told IANS.

As part of his vacation, the Enthiran actor is rumoured to have attended a detoxification program. He also spent some time at the Satchitandanda ashram in Virginia.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth's latest Tamil outing Kabali, which released on Friday (July 22), is successfully running in cinemas and is said to have grossed more than 350 Crores worldwide from its opening weekend.
Though many trade experts questioned producer Thanu's claim, saying that it is almost impossible for a film to join the 350 Crore mark in just 3 days, especially with a cap of 120 rupees for movie tickets in Tamil Nadu, sources in the know have said that many tickets were sold for much higher prices.
Also, the movie had collected a whopping 12 Crore rupees from its premiere shows alone in the USA, giving a perfect launch for something substantial.
Going by the way Kabali has started at the box office, it shouldn't come across as a surprise if the Rajinikanth-starrer joins the 500 Crore club by the end of its second week run in cinemas worldwide.
In the film, Rajinikanth plays an aged don who fights for equal pay rights for Tamilians living in Malaysia.
