Tamil superstar Rajnikanth has been admitted to Singapore’s top hospital, the Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre, according to sources.

The 61-year-old actor arrived here on Saturday with his wife and two daughters after he was discharged from a Chennai hospital where he spent two weeks being treated for respiratory problems.

He is now at the Mount Elizabeth centre, which is considered one of the best hospitals in Asia, and it’s roster of patients includes big wigs like Indian politician Amar Singh, who had a kidney transplant here in 2009.

However, the hospital has refused to comment on Rajnikanth’s health, saying that it was not obliged to disclose the identity of its patients when they request complete privacy.

After the ‘Endhiran’ star was discharged from the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre in Chennai on Friday, the hospital had released a bulletin saying that the actor was “cheerful” and doing well.

“He is cheerful, taking his food himself, spending time with family. He has scheduled his trip abroad for a change and relaxation and incidentally to go in for selective checkups,” said the bulletin.

The actor suffered from exhaustion on April 29, the first day of the shoot of his latest venture ‘Rana’ and was admitted to the Isabel Hospital in Chennai. He was discharged the same day only to be readmitted on May 4 for allergic bronchitis and viral fever.

He was then admitted to the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre on May 13 for respiratory infection and other problems.

He was shifted to a private ward last Sunday after being in the intensive care unit.
