As a result, after the death of MGR, a cold war broke out between Jayalalithaa and Karunanidhi. However, Karunanidhi would be more rightly sided with MGR than Jayalalithaa. The meeting between MGR and Karunanidhi, who is both a hare and a snake in politics, took place at the Palaniappa Theater in Pudukottai.
