Why Rajini met Karunanidhi?

When the news came that Superstar Rajinikanth called on DMK president and former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi in Chennai on Saturday, guesses were made in no time in political and film circles, about the reason behind the meeting.

Emerging out of the meeting, the Superstar elaborated on why he met the senior leader. ‘It was a courtesy call to convey my birthday wishes to him,’ Rajini told journalists.

He added: ‘I was out of town on Karunanidhi’s birthday (June 3). Only recently I returned to Chennai. So I came here to convey my wishes in person,’ Rajini said.
