Top Tamil actor Rajinikanth today visited a private hospital here and enquired about the health of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam president M Karunanidhi, who is under intensive care for the fourth consecutive day.
Rajinikanth said he prayed for the speedy recovery of the DMK chief.
"Kalaignar is a very senior political leader. He is now asleep," he told reporters outside Kauvery Hospital, where Karunanidhi is admitted since Saturday.
Rajinikanth said he met the nonagenarian leader's family members including DMK working president M K Stalin, M K Alagiri and party Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi and enquired about the leader's health.
"I pray for his speedy recovery," he said.
