Thalaivar's Car

When Thalaivar was in the acting stage he had a Chevrolet with white and green mix. It was having the number of 2248. Once when he became the Chief Minister he used green colored Ambassador with the number of TMX 4777. He never likes slow driving. He preferred the "Fast and Furious" way. His car dickey will always hav 100-200 oranges all the time. Since orange juices cleans the blood, chills the body and increases the digestive stamina, he drunk that. And moreover the juice has to be concentrated when given to him.

The titles

The title of "Makkal Thilagam" was given to Thalaivar by "Kalkandu" Tamizvaanan. Since he was constantly helping people out with his hand turning red Thiru Muruga Kirubananda Vaariyar Swamigal gave him the title of "Ponmana Chemmal". If my records are right the "Puratchi Thalaivar" title was given by K.A.K.

White hat

An aged Islamic friend of Thalaivar gave him a white hat. Except the shooting spot, he will be wearing that wherever he goes. And he continued to buy the hat from that particular friend's shop alone. The white hat symbolised Thalaivar all along his life.

Meeting Strategy

Usually when Thalaivar attends meetings or rallies, he makes a point to talk in the end. This is done because he witnessed that once if he finishes of his talk early the crowd leaves early. But this habit was not undertaken only in Annadurai's meetings. There he will talk ahead of Anna, so that Anna gives the final finish. In election rallies he used to say that that he never wanted monetary fortune. The amount of love people had in him will make his life so simple that he can have a meal everyday in their houses till the end of his life because they were his real fortune.

The launch of a fan club

For an actor there can be numerous fan clubs. But a country's prime minister inaugurating an actor's fan club can happen only for Thalaivar. Yes, The late Lal Bahadur Shastri inaugurated, "Panathottam MGR Rasigar Mandram" in 1965 when he was touring Andaman and Nicobar Islands. And i believe his fan club was the first to be launched in Dubai.

Foodie bit

Thalaivar does not eat non-veg on fridays alone. He likes aval paayasam very much. His favourite food is chicken fry and dried fish gravy. I believe this was said by S.S.R's actress wife Vijayakumari, who used to call Thalaivar as "Checha", some years back.
