Description
From the Jacket:

From a very modest beginning, MGR scaled the heights of popularity in Tamil films and politics. With several mega-hits under his belt, MGR's popularity shifted over from the reel to real when he became the darling of millions - as a politician, who empathized with the common man.

Having begun his political career as a member of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), he established the Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (ADMK) in 1972 and was elected the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu consecutively for a record three terms. MGR's legacy continues to flourish through various orphanages, hospitals, schools and fan clubs associated with his name.
