Jayalalitha was given prominent character which is equal to the Hero role. Domination of Jayalalitha in MGR movie is high when compared to other Heroines. She got individuals songs to show her talent in dancing, her dress sense and style. She was given a bigger role of teaching MGR all kind of martial arts in “Adimai Penn” (Slave Girl – for further reference click this http://mgrroop.blogspot.com/2006/03/story-of-adimai-pen.html) which MGR fan can’t digest, but the fans were convinced in the film. In most of MGR-Jayalalitha starrer films in a song or in a dialogue, she mentions that MGR is born for her, which is notable.
After 1972 when MGR expelled from DMK, the pair also parted, the last movie they acted “Pattikattu Ponnaiah” she has the merit of acting with MGR in his 100th film and 2 Silver Jubilee films Oli Vilakku and Adimai Penn. Though she was cast as First Heroine in “Ulagam Sutrum Valiban” (World Trotting Youth) that role was given to Actress Manjula later.
In 1972 there were gossip columns in Newspapers that MGR married her in Nepal, but was turned as a rumour.
After MGR became Chief Minister for the second time he gave Jayalalitha a post in his party. There she gained importance and after his death she became the party Leader overcoming some difficulty.
The first MGR tomb was erected in Karunanidhi’s period designed like an umbrella but it looked like a mushroom in directly meaning MGR not worthy. When Jayalalitha came to Power in 1991 she reconstructed the Tomb in the form of Lotus and paid respect to her Mentor and Guide.
The first tomb was constructed by a contractor named B.L.Srinivasan and he is the same contractor who again given Tender to demolish the Tomb. How I know it? Because I worked as Typist in the Public Works Department, the work was carried out by Buildings Sub Division I of Buildings Division II. I also had the chance to talk with the Contractor he was a nice gentleman.
