Superstar Rajinikanth has stopped ‘Kaala Karikaalan’ shooting in the mid-way and headed to the US for medical check-up. Fans need not have to be worry as he is absolutely fine and it is just a routine check-up.

Rajinikanth has flown out to US with his elder daughter Aishwaryaa. The megastar left for the US from Chennai on Wednesday. "Rajini sir left to the US with his daughter Aishwaryaa last night (Wednesday). He has gone for a regular medical check-up. They will be back in mid-July," IANS quoted a source as saying.

However, when probed further about the 66-year-old megastar, the source said Rajinikanth is "absolutely fine". 

Rajinikanth is under regular medication after his health worsens in 2011 and he was admitted to Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital for six weeks for kidney-related ailments and respiratory infection.

Rajnikanth has completed the first schedule shooting of ‘Kaala’ and he will return to the sets of ‘Kaala’ only in mid July.
