Veteran Kannada actor Rajkumar has fully recovered from his health problems and would be discharged on Friday, doctors said.

The actor was hospitalised on Monday following chest pain, bronchial allergy and lung infection

The thespian has "completely and fully" recovered and is only on oral medicines now, his personal physician Dr Ramana Rao said at Wockhardt Hospital and Heart Institute. "He is back from the difficult situation and is in a happy frame of mind".

K S Satish, chest physician, said, "lungs have completely recovered. He (Rajkumar) has shown overall improvement in all health aspects."

The 78-year-old actor made his debut in the celluloid world nearly five decades ago and is a revered figure in the state.

His son Raghavendra said Rajkumar was under a "lot of tension", after the recent passing away of his younger brother Varadaraj, who was the 'architect' of his entire film career.

He said people were worried about the actor's health as he was hospitalised twice this year -- in January following 'neurological problems'. Raghavendra said his father has completely recovered now.

Rao, interventional cardiologist P Ranganath Nayak and Dr Satish said Rajkumar's health condition would be monitored from his home from Friday.
