This former heroine ruled Tamil cinema for a long time. Much in demand for her histrionics, Jaylalithaa starred opposite Sivaji Ganesan and M G Ramachandran in many films. One of the first Tamil heroines who appeared in skirts on screen, her political initiation happened when M G Ramachandran founded the ADMK and invited her to join the party.
