    Honourable Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa breathed her last on December 05, 2016, leaving the entire nation in grief. Much before becoming a politician and the face of a state, Jayalalithaa was an actress who ruled the Tamil film industry.

    She was a prominent presence in the Tamil film industry since 1961 and later, she also went on to make a mark in other South Indian languages like Telugu, Kannada etc. The actress ruled the South Indian film industry in the 60's and the 70's.

    But, not many know that Jayalalithaa has acted in a Malayalam film, as well. In fact, the actress made her debut in Mollywood in the year 1973, much after she conquered the Tamil and Telugu film industries.
