Upon being honored with the prestigious NTR National Award, both Superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan thanked the Andhra Pradesh state government. They also congratulated each other.
“I convey my heartfelt thanks and happiness for the prestigious #NandiAwards granted to me,” Rajinikanth tweeted.
Kamal Haasan thanked the Telugu people and the govt. here for their continued support to him. “Congratulations superstar Rajinikanth for the NTR National award in 2016. Thank you Andhra for honouring me also, yet again. I am indebted to your continued support, which started early in my career. Kruthagnyathalu (Thank you),” he tweeted.
Reacting to Kamal’s tweet, Rajinikanth wrote, “Thank you Kamal. I wish you the same. Congratulations.”
Having recently taken digs at each other over their contrasting political ideologies, Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth have demonstrated that they are still very good friends, at least as far as cinema is concerned.
The government of Andhra Pradesh on Tuesday announced the Nandi Awards for 2014, 2015, and 2016. The NTR National Award was bestowed upon Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth for the years 2014 and 2016 respectively.
