Rajinikanth declines Kamal Haasan's invite for Tamil Nadu tour launch

Rajinikanth declines Kamal Haasan's invite for Tamil Nadu tour launch

Indicating that there may not be any immediate plans for both superstars to join hands in politics, Rajinikanth told the media that Kamal's style and his own were different in cinema.

Haasan's remarks came days after he said that any political tie-up with Rajinikanth seems unlikely, as latter has a "hue of saffron" in his politics, in an apparent reference to the BJP.

"Kamal came to seek Karunanidhi's blessing before he launches his party on the 21st.I also welcome him and give him my best", said DMK Working President MK Stalin. He wanted to meet the people he like before he begins his grand tour to meet the people of Tamilnadu and knows their problems along with their aspirations.

"The meeting is not related to politics". Both of them met at Rajnikant's residence on Sunday, said the meeting was nothing but a "courtesy call". "Friendship was dominant (at the meeting)", he added.

The veteran actor said he intends to challenge the status quo "that has been plaguing the politics of Tamil Nadu for some time now".

Rajinikanth's comment gains significance as it comes in the backdrop of Haasan ruling out any alliance with former if he has a hue of saffron in his politics.

Speaking about his impact against Basel , Guardiola said: "With the ball he was okay". To face into competitions every three or four days, we need all of them.

But this meet can't be looked at as just an advertising stunt before the launch of the party to keep them in the news.

Haasan will start his political journey on Wednesday from Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu. "I have invited him and he has given me his assurance", Stalin said. Tamil Nadu's politics has seen many fallouts after Jayalalitha's demise.

Rajinikanth's clarification has come after fervent questions by people on the two actors going together.

He said he would reveal his party ideology on February 21.

He will address public meetings at Ramanathapuram, Madurai, Manamadurai and Paramakudi that day.
