Kanimojhi put Kumar to DMK working president M K Stalin over phone, said JD(U) secretary general K C Tyagi, who had accompanied her to the CM's residence.
Tyagi said Kumar accepted the invitation and promised to visit Chennai for the birthday function.
Tyagi said JD(U) and DMK shared the view to support a common candidate in coming presidential election and would vote together against the NDA nominee for the post.
Kanimozhi also met RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi at their residence and invited them to attend the birthday function.
Lalu Prasad said he would attend the function as he always got love and affection from Karunanidhi.
Kanimozhi said her party hailed Nitish Kumar's efforts for the country-wide opposition unity.
She said the DMK had opposed the Centre's alleged attempts to interfere in the state's affair and impose Hindi on the people of Tamil Nadu.
