There's good new for Rajini fans as the South superstar has been declared fit by his doctors. This means that he will be able to perform his own stunts in daughter Soundarya's Kochadaiyaan, reports Subhash K Jha for Mid Day.

So instead of computer generated stunts, the film will see Rajini performing most of the action, says the tabloid.

"Earlier it had been decided to simulate the stunts through a cinematic device known as the performance-capturing technique. Given his health scare, the doctors had advised Rajni against physical exertion. But the star had put his foot down arguing that no computer would do the acting for him," writes Jha.

"Rajniji is fine now and in perfect physical condition. He will be performing a lot of his own stunts now but the performance-capturing technique will also be used," Producer Murli Manohar confirms to the tabloid.

While the doctors have given clean-chit to Rajini, Soundarya is still concerned about her father's health. "Soundarya is opposed to the idea. But Rajniji doesn't want to cheat his audiences. He says he feels better than ever before. Since we can't stop Rajniji, there will be health and action experts to ensure he doesn't get carried away and overdo the stunts," a source told the tabloid.

Hail Rajinikanth!
