Just a day after director, actor and comedian Sundarrajan met AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa and joined the party ahead of the assembly polls, sources had told The News Minute that sections of the party are in talks with actor comedian Karunas to join the party and campaign for the polls. A press release was issued by the AIADMK confirming this soon after.
After meeting with top AIADMK ministers on Saturday, comedian Karunas has officially pledged his support for the party on behalf of the Mukkulathor Pullippadai group, and has met Jayalalithaa to seal the deal.
The party has not assured the actor a seat in the 2016 elections, but advised the actor to work hard, according to sources close to Karunas. Karunas hails from the Mukkulathor community, which is already an AIADMK bastion, but his campaign could further add an edge to the party in the Madurai belt.
