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.

Charitavali is a series of biographies dedicated to the legendary figures of India. The series present the lives of great kings, freedom fighters, political thinkers social reformers, pioneers of industry, eminent scientists, philosophers, artists, musicians, dancers and film stars, writers and sport people.
