Superstar Rajinikanth, who was admitted to Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad on Friday, is “progressing well” as per Apollo Hospital’s official statement on Saturday.

Though Rajinikanth’s blood pressure is still on the higher side, it is better than before. The doctors treating him have conducted a few more tests and the reports for those will come by Today evening.

The actor’s daughter is with him. “He is stable and is resting. Family and treating doctors have requested all well-wishers to avoid visiting the hospital as he is not being allowed to meet any visitors,” the hospital said.

The 70-year-old actor was shooting for his film Annaatthe in Hyderabad since December 14. Earlier this week, four crew members of Annaatthe tested positive for coronavirus. Following the crew members’ diagnosis, Rajinikanth took the COVID-19 test on December 22 and his result came negative.
