Superstar Rajinikanth yesterday flew to Singapore for "rest and rehabilitation" after being discharged from a private hospital where he was admitted for respitatory problems. The "Endhiran" star was wheeled in through the cargo entrance through gate number two even as media personnel and others waited around gate numbers five and six, airport sources said. Rajini was taken to the waiting aircraft by an ambulance and waved to the fans who gathered at the airport before being escorted into the flight, sources said. He was accompanied by his two daughters and son-in-laws, including actor Dhanush and his personal doctor Muralidharan, sources said. Earlier in the day, the family members of 61-year-old actor said he was "well" and "cheerful" following his discharge from the hospital.
