Speculations and rumours regarding Rana Daggubati’s health, each more serious than the previous one, continue to surface, leaving Tollywood fans concerned about the actor. We had reported that Rana was scheduled to undergo an eye surgery and that the actor was waiting for his blood pressure levels to drop before setting a date for the operation.
But now, various outrageous rumours are being floated, suggesting that the Baahubali star has not been keeping well and that his problems stem from a kidney ailment. Some even said that he’s in touch with the doctors who treated Rajinikant in Singapore! But when contacted, Rana very calmly says, “They are absolutely baseless rumours. I am as fit and fine as ever, and I’m raring to go,” adding, “I do have some blood pressure issues that I’m currently addressing, and that has delayed my eye surgery, but that’s about it. There isn’t anything more to it. My current line-up of films has me all geared up and I’m busy shooting and shuttling between Mumbai and Hyderabad.”
The actor recently wrapped up a schedule of his upcoming trilingual film Haathi Mere Saathi. And the next schedule has been put on hold for the time being thereby giving rise to speculation about Rana’s ill-health. Few weeks back, his dad Suresh Babu was quite open about the eye operation. “It takes time as we have to check all the parameters. The operation could be end of this month or early next month,” he said. When asked why shooting for the second schedule of Haathi Mere Saathi has been kept on hold, he explained, “Rana completed the Bangkok shooting and was supposed to shoot in the Kerala forest next, but I don’t want him to go now for the shoot in the forests. Because the next two months is monsoon season in Kerala. Shooting will start afterwards.”
