Actor-Politician Rajinikanth visited Kauvery hospital to enquire about DMK President Karunanidhi’s health on Tuesday.

“I came here to check on the health of Dr Kalaignar. He is a senior Indian leader. He was sleeping when I went. I met Alagiri, Stalin, Kanimozhi and Tamilarasan. I gave them emotional support. What else can I do? I pray to God that he will get better soon,” said Rajinikanth after his visit.

Rajinikanth was away on a shoot for his next movie directed by Karthik Subbaraj. He had enquired about Karunanidhi’s health to DMK Working President MK Stalin on Friday and was expected to call on Karunanidhi once he was back in Chennai. He reached Chennai on Tuesday night and went directly to Kauvery hospital.
