India's two national parties, Modi's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and the opposition Congress, have little presence in Tamil Nadu, a state of almost 70 million people where politics have been dominated by the DMK and Jayalalithaa's AIADMK.

Karunanidhi, whose original name was Dakshinamurthy, was born in Thirukkuvalai village in Nagapattinam district. He then founded Tamil Nadu Tamil Manavar Mandram which was the first student movement of the Dravidian movement.

However the latest statement from the Tamil Nadu Government has denied the request of the DMK leader's family which was also his dying wish.

"Social scientist and writer M.S.S. Pandian once pointed, ".(Parasakthi) was a signboard of the coming days of the consensual politics the DMK was destined to play in Tamil Nadu". "Of these early films, Karunanidhi's "Parasakthi" ("The Goddess") stunned Tamil audiences", Robert L. Hardgrave Jr., Temple Professor Emeritus of the Humanities in Government and Asian Studies at the University of Texas, told CNN.

And in a career spanning 80 years, he wore different hats - a student leader, scriptwriter, orator and politician.

All India Dravida Munntra founder MG Ramachandran, former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and DMK founder C Annadurai have been buried at the Marina beach.

Ambulance carrying Karunanidhi's mortal remains has left Kauvery hospital and is on its way to DMK Patriarch's Gopalapuram residence. "Fan clubs mobilized support for the party and voter turnout during elections", according to Hardgrave Jr.

Riding on an anti-incumbency wave, Karunanidhi became Chief Minister for the fourth time in 1996. In Kollywood, M Karunanidhi was known for his writing works and M.R. Radha gave him the title of Kalaignar.

He was active in politics until his death and most recently contested the 2016 state assembly against his long-time opponent and bitter rival Jayaram Jayalalitha, who died later that year.

Karunanidhi swiftly rose up the ranks. Stalin had also met the chief minister hours before his father's death.
