Tamil actor-politician R. Sarath Kumar on Thursday was rushed to a private hospital in Chennai, according to sources, after he complained of pain in the abdomen. It turns out, it was a false alarm and the actor was merely down due to food poisoning.
The doctors ran a few tests and confirmed that there was nothing to worry. The actor is expected to be discharged later today. However, some reports had claimed that the 61-year-old suffered a mild cardiac arrest while working out in the gym.
His wife, Radikaa Sarath Kumar, rubbished the rumours. On her Twitter page, Radikaa wrote that her husband is fine and that heâ€™s down with food poisoning and muscle spasm. She also requested people to not believe in any rumour thatâ€™s being circulated.
Popularly known as the Supreme Star, Sarath has worked in all the south Indian languages. Heâ€™s currently busy shooting for the Kannada film, Santheyalli Nintha Kabira.
