They may be rivals on the big screen and in the political arena, but on Thursday Rajinikanth invited Kamal Haasan to his daughter Soundarya's wedding with a warm hug. 

According to reports, superstar Rajinikanth invited founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM), Kamal Haasan for his daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth`s wedding which is set to take place on 11th February at Rajinikanth's residence in Chennai. 

Filmmaker Soundarya Rajinikanth will wed businessman-actor Vishagan Vanangamudi whom she has been dating for the past two years. The preparations of the grand wedding are on in full swing. Check out the first pictures from the wedding celebrations here. 

Thalaivar, who entered into politics in December 2017, is yet to launch his political party and is uncertain about contesting the Lok Sabha polls. Meanwhile, Haasan, on Thursday, said that his party is gearing up for contesting all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in the coming Parliamentary polls.

Though the actor didn’t disclose from where is he likely to contest the election, he clearly indicated that he would not form an alliance with any `tainted` group.

"Our aim is to not go with any tainted group. We are preparing to contest 40 seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. I cannot say at this moment from where I will contest," Haasan told media persons while clearing the air with the announcement that his party MNM was indeed gearing up for contesting all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in the coming Parliamentary polls.

Haasan had earlier said that his party would contest the Lok Sabha polls in alliance with like-minded parties.
