On Sunday, the two men next to each other at a government function to inaugurate the Shivaji Ganeshan memorial – Mani Mandapam, honouring an icon of Tamil cinema. They exchanged pleasantries but when they spoke, Rajinikanth implied in his style that his path is not where Kamal wants to push.

“It takes more than stardom to be successful in politics,” 66-year-old Rajinikanth said. “Kamal knows what is needed, I don’t.

Then in a mocking note he added "Maybe he would have told me that two months back. Now, he tells me to come along with him”.

Kamal was more direct and said “As a big Sivaji Ganesan fan, I would have come to the function even if I was not invited,” Haasan said, in a veiled reference to his rocky relationship with the state government.

Kamal has been critical of the state government but not attacking central government claimed his critics in social media.

It is been told by party insiders that ADMK that Chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami stayed away from the function, as he didn’t want to share the stage with Haasan, sources said.
