Notedly, the Tamil superstar had left for US for his routine medical checkup after the completion of the Mumbai schedule of his forthcoming film Kaala.

Taking to Twitter, Swamy wrote, “Wow! RK 420 in a US Casino gambling to improve his health!! ED must find out from where his $$ came from.” The former Janata party leader referred to Rajnikanth as ‘RK 420’ in his tweets.
