Tamil Nadu Minister for Co-operation, Sellur K. Raju, said on Friday that the social reforms triggered by Dravida Kazhagam (DK) founder E.V. Ramaswamy, popularly known as Periyar, enabled the remarriage of Rajinikanth”s daughter.
Raju was responding to reporters in Madurai on the controversy over actor Rajinikanth”s recent comments at the 50th anniversary function of Tamil magazine “Thuglak” about a rally in Salem in Tamil Nadu led by Periyar in 1971.
“Rajini is being misguided by somebody. His daughter has got married for a second time. The change was due to Periyar. Would they have accepted earlier based on their religion,” Raju asked.
