Sri MGR Year 96, 19th July, Friday
MGR’s favourite lyric writer Vaali (Rangarajan) passed away yesterday in Chennai at the age of 82. He first worked with our beloved Leader for the movie Nallavan Vazhvan for the song “Sirikindral Indru”. Though the movie was a average run, MGR used his talent and patronized him.
From Nallavan Vazhvan to Maduraiyai Meeta Sundarapandian this duo produced immortal songs on screen. His greatest song that happened in MGR’s life is “Naan Aanai Itttal” in Enga Veetu Pillai. MGR an actor who became the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, 1965 it was mere lines became immortalized in 1977.

Enga Veetu Pillai
Most of MGR philosophical songs are written by Vaali, I am very much blessed for my Professor who taught me Tamil in College had done his Ph.D., in Vaali songs.
Iraivaa Un Maaligaiyil
This song is from Olivilakku, the lyrics became more popular in 1984 when our beloved Puratchi Thalaivar was in United States undergoing Kidney Transplant.
We srimgr.com team pray for his soul to rest in peace.
