At the age 15, Jayalalithaa made her Kannada debut with blockbuster movie Chinnada Gombe, which was produced and directed by B. R. Panthulu. Following the success of her first film, more work came her way, prompting her mother, Vedavalli aka Sandhya, who was also a film actor, to persuade her to take up the acting as a full-time job to help the family with its financial problems.

Before Jayalalithaa became a household name in Tamil Nadu through her films, she was part of dance and drama troupes. And she accidentally landed an opportunity to perform a song in Kannada superstar Rajkumar’s film Shri Shaila Mahathme as a child artist.

A few years later, she was offered the female lead role in Epistle (1961), the only English movie in her career, which was bankrolled by former Indian President VV Giri’s son Shankar Giri. And it was officially released in 1966 to a poor response in the theatres.

The trigger was her interview to a Tamil magazine, where she said that she was born in Karnataka and fluent in Kannada but she was always a Tamilian. The comment did not go down well with Kannada activists.

In 1970, when she was shooting for Tamil remake of Kannada movie Ganga Gowri at Premier Studio in Mysuru, she came under the attack.

The members of Kannada Chaluvali Vatal Paksha led by Vatal Nagaraj stalled the shooting as they tried to enter the studio. They wanted her to apologize for what she said. Jayalalithaa wouldn’t budge. The protesters were eventually persuaded to leave the place by Kannada filmmakers. That was her first run-in with a political party.

She soon became a popular name in Tamil, Kannada and Telugu industries. She was just not eye candy and played some substantial roles, equivalent to her male counterparts. One of her memorable roles was in Suryagandhi (1973) in which she shared screen space with R Muthuraman.

She showed her talent in doing comedy with Galatta Kalyanam (1968) with actor Sivaji Ganesan, another stalwart who ruled the Tamil cinema parallel to M G Ramachandran. Her other standout role with Sivaji would be Engirundho Vandhal (1970), in which she had played a feisty and empowering woman.

However, her career and stardom grew by leaps and bounds when she landed her first movie with MRG in B.R.Panthalu’s Aayirathil Oruvan in 1965. And she never looked back.

It is said that MGR was reluctant to cast Jayalalithaa because he thought she looked too young to be romantically paired with him. However, he was convinced by the filmmakers to give the young talent a shot. And Aayirathil Oruvan became one of the major hits of all time in Tamil.

After its success, MGR and Jayalalithaa starred in about 28 films together and became the most successful onscreen couple of all time with the masses. Besides Aayirathil Oruvan, some of their evergreen list of films, include, Adimaippenn (1969), Neerum Neruppum (1971), En Annan (1970), Raman Thediya Seethai (1972), Nam Naadu (1969) among others.
