The man they called 'God'
Today (17 January 2016) is MGR’s 99th birthday. He was not just an actor but was also director, producer, and politician who also served as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu successively for three terms till his death in 1987. His life was an amazing one- a movie idol turned a charismatic politician and then a successful Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu
He played an important role influencing the people especially the poor with the virtues and good values he portrayed in his films. He may have died 29 years ago but his influence can still be felt in the hearts of millions not just in Tamil Nadu but throughout the world, including Malaysia.
May he rest in peace
