Superstar Rajnikanth has been admitted to the intensive care unit at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital, where his condition is said to be stable but before leaving Chennai he left behind a voice message promising his fans that he will be back soon.

The 61-year-old actor flew in to Singapore yesterday and was immediately taken to the ICU for “rest and rehabilitation” after being discharged from the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre where he was admitted on May 13 for respiratory infection and other problems.

His son-in-law Dhanush, a Tamil actor, said that his condition is stable and there is no cause for any alarm.

With his fans converging at the Chennai hospital in large numbers enquiring about his health, the ‘Endhiran’ star left a brief recorded voice message in Tamil promising them that he will be back among them soon.

The voice clip was sent to the media and fans by his daughter Soundarya before he left Chennai.

“I am happily going about my routine. Will come as soon as the treatment gets over,” Rajnikanth said in his one-minute message.

“How can I reciprocate the love you have shown for me? I get money for acting, for that you are showering so much love. How will I pay you all back?”

“I will conduct myself in such a way that I will never let down all my fans throughout the world. I have God’s blessings and the blessings of the Guru. Above all, I have the blessing of all my fans who are the manifestation of God,” he added.
