MGR had an impact on Jaya’s life from films to politics and this is also shown well in the trailer. From 1965 to 1973, MGR acted in nearly 28 films with Jayalalithaa. Jayalalithaa’s first film with MGR was ‘Aayrathil Oruvan’ which came out in 1965. MGR also played an important role in bringing him into politics.
MGR had done three marriages
Jaya’s first meeting with MG Ramachandran was during the shooting. In her second film itself, Jayalalithaa got an opportunity to work with MG Ramachandran. According to Vasanthi, who wrote Jayalalithaa’s biography ‘Amma Journey from Movie Star to Political Queen’, MGR had a soft corner towards Jayalalithaa from the very beginning. However, both of them could not get married as Ramachandran had already done three marriages.
MGR was convinced of beauty
In an interview, Vasanthi had said, “MGR had been Jaya from the beginning. Jayalalitha used to speak very good English. At the time of shooting, she used to sit in a corner and read English novels and did not talk to anyone. Jaya was white and very beautiful to look at. Usually not so many white girls are seen in Tamil Nadu. ‘
Made a member of Rajya Sabha, opposition in the party
Jayalalitha herself wrote in Kumudan magazine, ‘The car parking was a little far away. There were no slippers and shoes in the feet. My legs had turned red. I could not say anything. MGR understood my problem and lifted me in his lap.
MGR made Jayalalithaa the party’s propaganda secretary as well as a member of the Rajya Sabha. However, Jayalalithaa was opposed in the party and MGR had to remove her from the post.
