Stating that Rajinikanth had an "imbalance in his system", the superstar's wife Latha, on Thursday (19-May-2011), reiterated that the actor's vital organs were in good shape and that he was fine.

On Thursday, Mr. Rajinikanth is said to have taken food — two idlis, a vada and plaintain stem rasam that his wife made. He also appeared cheerful, and even cracked jokes, say hospital sources.

Rajinikanth had undergone hemodialysis and ultrafiltration and his lab parameters were improving, said an official release on Thursday.

"But dialysis does not imply that he is suffering from kidney failure," said Latha Rajinikanth, who explained that the actor had been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit only to prevent infection. He had an infection in his lungs and a gastrointestinal disorder, she said.

"Please understand that Rajini also has a body and is prone to infections like everybody else," Latha said, as she thanked the superstar’s fans for their prayers and support. Resuming the actor’s new film Rana was not a priority at the moment and there was no need for him to go abroad for treatment, she clarified.

Actor Dhanush thanked Mr. Rajinikanth's fans for their prayers and wishes, and urged them not to panic in response to a number of rumours being floated about the star's health.

Vijaykanth said that reporters should be able to gauge about Rajini’s health from his beaming smile. He said that he was confident about Rajini returning home very soon.

It may be mentioned here that Kamal Haasan had also gone to visit Rajini but he could not meet him.

Most recently, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Friday (20-May-2011) enquired about the health of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth from his wife Latha and said she would pray for his speedy recovery.
