- Superstars Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth attend DMK event
- Kamal Haasan, critical of ruling AIADMK, didn't rule out joining politics
- However he indicated that joining DMK is perhaps not on the cards.
Kamal Haasan did not disappoint. With Rajinikanth watching from the front row, Mr Haasan, who shared stage with party leaders including MK Stalin, did not rule out joining politics, although he did indicate that joining DMK is, perhaps, not on the cards.
Last month, the actor had appeared critical of the ruling party, the AIADMK, asking people to email ministers with complaints of what he described as widespread corruption which triggered speculations about his joining the opposition DMK.
Rajinikanth, who was on a VIP seat in the front row, did not participate in the discussion. Rumours about Rajinikanth joining politics and launching his own party have been in circulation in the state since the actor's comment in May. "If God wills it, I will enter politics tomorrow," the 67-year-old had said, triggering fan frenzy and anticipation.
Local BJP leaders had immediately invited him to join the party. The actor had given a cryptic reply, saying "Whatever I had to say I said, now I have nothing more to say".
His recent meeting with senior BJP leader Poonam Mahajan had renewed the buzz.
