The two big stars of the Tamil movie world, Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth, on Thursday attended the 75th anniversary celebrations of DMK mouthpiece, Tamil daily Murasoli.

Haasan, who has of late been critical of the AIADMK government, was seated on the dais next to DMK Working President MK Stalin.

Rajinikanth, who may enter politics, was seated along with other dignitaries.

The DMK party also released a souvenir commemorating Murasoli’s milestone.

The function was attended by editors of various dailies and magazines and cine stars.

Speaking at the event, Kamal Haasan said that Dravidian culture is pan-Indian and would continue to exist till the word `Dravida’ exists in India’s National Anthem.

“Many are predicting that Dravidian culture would vanish. But Dravidam (Dravidian culture) would continue to exist till the word Dravida exists in the National Anthem,” Kamal Haasan said.
