     1'''Jayalalitha Jayaram (b. 1948)''' 
     2 
     3 
     4Tamil, Telugu and Kannada star, now better 
     5known as a politician. Born in Mysore, the 
     6daughter of screen star Sandhya. Learnt the 
     7Bharat Natyam. Claims that she wanted to 
     8study law, but dropped out of school to follow 
     9her aunt Vidyavati (who acted in e.g. En 
     10Veedu/Naa Illu, 1953) into films to support 
     11her family. Début in Shankar V. Giri’s English 
     12film Epistle. Early career in Kannada where her 
     13second film, Chinnada Gombe, was a major 
     14hit. Introduced to Tamil by C.V. Sridhar 
     15(Vennira Adai). Telugu début in Manasulu 
     16Mamathalu, but became a star in that language 
     17playing the vampish lead in G. Krishna’s 
     18James Bond-type hit Goodachari 116. First film 
     19with MGR, the star most closely associated 
     20with both her cinematic and political careers, is 
     21Panthulu’s Ayirathil Oruvan, followed by 
     22M.A. Thirumugham’s Kannithai. She is a 
     23crucial element in MGR’s films, esp. 1968-70 
     24when she was at the pinnacle of her career and 
     25featured in almost every MGR film, usually to 
     26allow the proletarian hero to move across class 
     27barriers (e.g. Nam Naadu, Mattukkara 
     28Velan). Left films about the same time as MGR, 
     29after which she wrote for Cho’s fortnightly 
     30Tughlaq until MGR made her an important 
     31member of his All-India Anna Dravida 
     32Munnetra Kazhagam (1981). After MGR’s death 
     33became embroiled in a bitter rivalry with 
     34MGR’s wife V.N. Janaki over the leadership of 
     35the party, which she eventually led to victory, 
     36becoming Chief Minister (1991-6). She was 
     37briefly imprisoned after her electoral defeat in 
     381996 for possessing ‘wealth disproportionate to 
     39her known sources of income’. Made a 
     40comeback in films playing ‘herself’  
     41(as a politician/Chief Minister) in Neenga Nalla 
     42Erukkanum, delivering a message on 
     43prohibition.
