DMK president M K Stalin and top Kollywood stars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan are among the invitees for the May 30 swearing-in of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister for his second term.
While the DMK will be represented by senior MPs, T R Baalu and A Raja, the two stars are yet to respond to the invitation. However, it is said Rajini and Kamal are likely to attend the high profile event. Kamal's remarks that free India's first extremist was a Hindu, referring to Nathuram Godse who had gunned down Mahatma Gandhi, had drawn a strong reaction from the state BJP, which even moved the Election Commission, seeking action against him.
Rajini, soon after the BJP's massive victory, tweeted: "Respected dear @narendramodi ji hearty congratulations ... You made it !!! God bless."
Modi responded: "Dear @rajinikanth Ji, thanks a lot. It is the people of India who blessed us and no stone will be left unturned to fulfil their aspirations."
