Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan have been close friends for over 40 years, ever since they first stepped into Tamil cinema as lead actors. They have braved through all the years when they were arch rivals and their fans were at loggerheads with one another. Over the past two decades the rivalry between the two has lost its sting due to the decreasing volume of their films but the friendship and mutual respect between them stays intact. Recently too, Rajinikanth personally invited Kamal Haasan for his daughter Soundarya’s wedding; Kamal also obliged willingly and attended the wedding. Rajini has now tweeted his best wishes to Kamal for the upcoming Indian general elections in which Kamal’s party Makkal Needhi Maiam will be contesting.
Rajini’s tweet translates to, “I wish Makkal Needhi Maiam's leader and my friend Kamal Haasan the very best as his party steps into its second year and gears up to contest its very first elections. I hope and sincerely wish that he succeeds in the political arena too.”
Kamal promptly replied, “Thank you Rajinikanth, my friend for the past 40 years. If a good man like you stands beside me, 40 more years look easy. Tomorrow is ours.”
Fans of both the legends were instantly raving about these tweets and celebrating the camaraderie between their favorite icons.
