Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi was felicitated at a function organised by the Sanga Thamizh Peravai on Sunday. Lot of celebrities from political and film worlds spoke in praise of the chief minister at the function.
Union Minister Jagathratchagan, state Law Minister Duraimurugan, film stars Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Mammootty were among others who offered their felicitations.
Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah were also there at the function.
Several eyebrows in political and film circles went up to note Latha Rajinikanth going without the super star to invite the chief minister Karunanidhi for the engagement of Soundarya Rajinikanth. The incident assumed more significance as the super star himself went to invite the former chief minister Jayalalitha.
But all doubts were put to rest by the super star himself at a function organised by Sanga Thamizh Peravai to felicitate Karunanidhi in Chennai yesterday. Speaking at the function the super star said he would be inviting the Chief Minister personally for Soundarya’s wedding.
“Because, there is a saying that a ruler is like fire and one should neither be too close nor too far from him. So I would always maintain a distance with those in power. However, nothing could stop me from inviting him personally for Soundarya’s marriage” he added amidst thunderous applause from the audience
