Some of the lower party cadres call Kalaignar M Karunanidhi as Ayya. On the other hand, J Jayalalitha is called as Amma which everyone knows about. Rajnikanth called ADMK Chief and Chief Minister J Jayalalitha soon after he was discharged from the hospital.
He called her from Singapore to congratulate her on her victory in the 2011 Assembly Election. Rajnikanth was seriously ill when J Jayalalitha won the elections. He couldn’t call Amma and wish her for her victory.
Rajnikanth called her now as he has fully recuperated from his illness. J Jayalalitha said she wanted to see him in Chennai soon for which the Superstar said that he would rest in Singapore for a month and a half before he would come back to Chennai.
Soon after he called the Chief Minister, he also called DMK Leader and Ex-Chief Minister M Karunanidhi to tell him that he has fully recovered. M Karunanidhi also wished him a complete and quick recovery to see him back in Chennai.
Kalaignar M Karunanidhi was the first to visit the hospital to enquire about Rajnikanth’s health in April, when the Superstar was first admitted in the hospital. However, calling both the leaders would help avoid controversy but the same could also attract controversies!
