CHENNAI: Superstar Rajinikanth has left for the US for a medical checkup, a source said.

"Rajini sir left to the US with his daughter Aishwarya last night (Wednesday). He has gone for a regular medical checkup. They will be back in mid-July," a source close to the actor told IANS.

The source clarified that Rajinikanth is "absolutely fine".

He has completed the first schedule shooting of his upcoming Tamil film "Kaala". The 67-year-old will return to the sets of "Kaala", in which he plays a slum-lord-turned-gangster, in July.

"Kaala" reunites Rajinikanth and "Kabali" director Pa. Ranjith.

The film, which also stars Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Anjali Patil, Pankaj Tripathi, Samuthirakani and Sakshi Aggarwal, is being bankrolled by actor-producer Dhanush.
