TAMIL ACTORS

M.G.R

MGR was born poor and had to struggle to meet his ends. He acted in several small roles before he got his big breakthrough in the 1947 film Rajakumaari, written by M. Karunanidhi. He had the maximum number of all-time blockbusters to his credit at that time viz. Nadodi Mannan, Enga Veetu Pillai and Adimai Pen. In 1977 be became the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and died in 1987 as Chief Minister.

Sivaji Ganesan

Ganesan's inspiration for acting was inborn; when he got a chance to act on stage for a touring drama company he took it without his father's consent at the age of seven. At the age of 10, he moved to Tiruchirappalli and joined a drama troupe in Sangiliyandapuram and began to perform in stage plays. From the drama troupe trainers he was very lucky enough to learn acting and dancing skills. He wastrained in Bharatanatyam, Kathak and Manipuri.Ganesan was an intellectual boy who could remember lengthy lines easily and could present them to the audience brilliantly with perfection. This made him hero of the troupe in the long run. His outstanding portrayal of the character of Chhatrapati Shivaji in the stage play Shivaji Kanda Hindu Rajyam earned him the title "Sivaji"which was conferred on him at a public function presided over by E. V. Ramasamy, a social reformer. Since then, he was referred by the name "Sivaji". Ganesan made his acting debut in the 1952 Tamil film Parasakthi, directed by the famous directors Krishnan- Panju, produced by P.A. Perumal Mudaliar of National pictures. The film became a huge hig and there was no looking back.

Rajinikanth 

He is a true inspiration for many of us who dream of something big in life and to achieve that with pure dedication and hard work. The ‘style mannan’ (king of styles) of India is compared to God by his fans and he lives amidst all luxury and fame; but yet he is down to earth! What makes Rajini so humble and influential? A person who worked as a bus conductor and later on went to conquer the Indian film industry will obviously know the hard phases of life and that makes him powerful and modest at the same time. Being the youngest among 4 siblings and having lost his mother at a very small age, Rajini’s childhood didn’t have any of the fun and privileges that a normal child enjoys. He had to face the harsh realities of life; but his determination didn’t stop him from achieving what he wanted.

Nagesh

Early in his life, he saw a Tamil play Kamba Ramayanam enacted by his colleagues, and felt that he could do a good job. He persuaded the secretary of the Railways cultural association to give him the role of a man suffering from stomach pain. MGR, then chief guest, seeing this play, in his speech praised Nagesh for his performance. From then onwards, Nagesh played small roles in various drama troupes. In 1958, producer Balaji spotted Nagesh and gave him his first break in a film called Manamulla Marudhaaram. The film did not do well at the box office. Moreover, Nagesh had only a small role to play in the movie. Nagesh won critical acclaim for his performance in the 1961 movie Thayilla Pillai. But it was his 1962 hit Nenjil Or Aalayam which launched his career in the Tamil film industry. Nagesh was seen playing the lead role in Server Sundaram (1964) directed by the famous duo directors of yesteryears, namely Krishnan-Panju. The movie was a remarkable hit and proved to be a great turning point in his career.
