Rajinikanth termed the meeting as a pure courtesy call as he came to enquire about the health condition of ‘Captain’ (as Vijayakanth is called) after his return from the United States following medical treatment.
“When I was unwell, it was Captain who had first met me personally and enquired about my health condition. So I came to meet him to enquire about his health conditon (on his return from US after treatment)”, he said.
Clarifying that there was no politics in his viist, Rajini added: “Vijayakanth has recovered well…he is fine. I am so happy to see him in good health.”
Soon after Rajini’s meet, DMK president M K Stalin rushed to Vijayakanth’s residence, triggering strong speculations that he woudl invite DMDK to the DMK-Congress alliance.
However, speaking to reporters, Stalin said, “When Kalaignar passed away, Vijayakanth condoled it in an emotional away. I came here only to enquire his health condition. I didn’t speak politics.”
