Though a host of celebrities including Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Ajith paid tributes to the mortal remains of DMK president M Karunanidhi at Rajaji Hall, some top celebrities were missing.
Vijay could not pay a visit since he is in the United States to shoot for ‘Sarkar’. Instead, his wife Sangeetha paid last respects to Kalaignar.
Vikram, whose daughter is married to Karunanidhi’s great grandson, said in a statement that since he is out of the city, he couldn’t pay his last respects to the former Chief Minister.
Vijayakanth, who too is in the United States, released a video in which went emotional more than a couple of times. The ‘Captain’ said that he couldn’t come to Chennai to pay his final respects but his heart goes out for Kalaignar.
Shankar said in a Twitter post: “Saddened, hearing about the great leader, Tamil scholar and writer Thiru dr. Kalaignar. It’s a big loss to Tamil and tamilians. Missing badly to pay my respects as stuck in Ukraine . My deepest condolences to his family and followers . May his soul Rest In Peace.”
Radikaa Sarathkumar is in Singapore for the school admission of her son and she too issued a video message.
