Stalin did not include his son Udhayanidhi Stalin in the cabinet. Udhayanidhi, a film star-turned-politician had won with a margin of 60,000 votes from Chepauk seat and was tipped to be in the  cabinet -- speculations of him being the Deputy Chief Minister have been doing rounds. 

There are 15 new faces in the cabinet -- the first timers. 

DMK is forming a government in Tamil Nadu after a gap of 10 years and has assumed office with a lot of promises. The first priority of the new chief minister will be to hold a review meeting on Covid prevention and spread with the district collectors of Tamil Nadu. 

It is learnt that the Chief Minister will not be moving for a major bureaucratic reshuffle immediately.
