This image was taken from The Hindu an article about Old memorable movies. This week it was about MGR’s first Hero movie “Rajakumari”. Randor Guy is well known writer about yester year movies.
There was no mention about Kalaignar. This was the first movie of MGR and Kalaignar combo.

To hold the position of Hero MGR had told lot in his Biography “Nan Yen Piranthan”. When the producer wished to replace MGR with P.U.Chinnappa and when someone with a long hair i.e. Bhagavathar hair style goes to meet the Producer, there was rumour that MGR was to be replaced. Each and every people of the set will look at MGR sadly. That this is the last day for MGR as Hero. Think how a personality like MGR suffered this torture.
After looking into the movie I feel that MGR’s action remained the same to his last movie, movement of his hands, gestures, smile etc., he has lightly changed the dialogue delivery. Maybe because it is 1947.
