- Superstars Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth attend DMK event
- Kamal Haasan has been critical of the ruling AIADMK
- Rajinikanth has acknowledged he is in talks with political parties
Speaking at the ceremony to mark 75 years of the party's mouthpiece, 'Murasoli', 62-year-old Kamal Haasan did not rule out joining politics.
"On Twitter, I'm being asked if I would announce my political plunge today on this stage. If I wanted, back in 1983, when Karunanidhi sent a telegram asking me to join the party, I never answered him. Haven't been able to answer till now," he said.
Rajinikanth in June made political hearts beat faster by announcing that he is contemplating a new day job. He asked fans to be ready to fight the good war and said he is in talks with different parties. In 1996 Rajinikanth had asked the people to support the DMK government and not its charismatic opponent J Jayalalithaa, famously declaring, "Even God can't save Tamil Nadu if Jayalalithaa comes back to power again" a move which he later described as "a mistake and an accident."
Sources said the 66 year-old, also known as "Thalaivar" (ultimate boss), would not speak at this evening's event.
