Just a day after director, actor and comedian Sundarrajan met AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa and joined the party ahead of the assembly polls, sources have 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.
After meeting with top AIADMK ministers on Saturday, Comedian Karunas has reportedly pledged his support for the party, and is said to have sought an appointment to meet Jayalalithaa on Sunday 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 a bastion, but his campaign could further add an edge to the party in the Madurai belt.
Karunas is known to have nursed political ambitions, giving fiery speeches at rallies over the years.
On March 24, 2016, All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi (AISMK) leader Sarathkumar had met Jayalalithaa and announced that his party will have an alliance with AIADMK. He had earlier said that he will be joining the NDA alliance for the elections.
