Kamal Haasan on Sunday called on DMK patriarch M. Karunanidhi and friend, co-star and aspiring politician Rajinikanth at their residences ahead of the launch of his political party.

“I have been meeting people who I like before I start my journey. In the last 40 years, it is a custom in both of our families that if there is some event in my house, we will invite Rajini’s family and vice versa,” he said.

After the brief meeting with Karunanidhi, Haasan said he called on the former CM to get his blessings and inform him about his political journey.
