Hyderabad: Superstar Rajinikanth will be discharged from Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad on the evening of 27 December, said the hospital authorities. The veteran actor was admitted to the hospital on 25 December with severe hypertension and exhaustion.

"He was kept under close medical supervision and treated by a team of doctors. His blood pressure has stabilised and he is feeling much better. In view of his improved medical condition, he is being discharged from the hospital today," said the hospital authorities.

The hospital also said that in view of his post-transplant status, labile hypertension, and age, he has been advised complete bed rest for a week, regular monitoring of blood pressure, and minimal physical activity. The actor has also been advised to avoid stress as it can increase the risk of contracting COVID-19.
