Kamal added that the DMK chief did not ask him about it again due to his "magnanimity".

A key bellwether of North Korea tensions is surging
Earlier on Thursday, North Korea revealed a plan to launch ballistic missiles toward a major USA military hub in the Pacific. Security Council unanimously imposed harsh new sanctions on the country that could deprive the regime of $1 billion a year .

While there have been many reports in the media about Rajinikanth joining politics, there had been similar assumptions being made about Haasan. "What an opportunity you are going to fritter". He recalled that he received a letter from M Karunanidhi in 1983, which was an invitation to join the DMK.

Haasan turning up at the DMK event also comes in the backdrop of AIADMK top brass attacking the actor for his remarks on corruption, calling him "third-rate" performer.

For a while now, Kamal has been mounting a scathing attack on the ruling AIADMK government, accusing several departments of rampant corruption.

Observing that the dravidian culture was notconfined to South India, but was pan-India, actor Kamal Haasan has observed that it would exist till the word "Dravidas" exists in the National Anthem. He said: "Many are predicting that Dravidian culture would vanish".

He said Dravidian culture is actually a pan-Indian culture that spread from the Indus Valley Civilisation. "But it will continue till the world "Dravidas" exists in the National Anthem", he said, amid loud applause from the audience. The function was attended by editors of various dailies and magazines and cine stars.
