January 12th 1967, afternoon, after attending the election campaign, MGR came back to his house for the lunch. On that fateful day, one of his villain actors, M.R.Radha accompanying with Vasu (producer of Petral than pillaiya?) visited Ramavaram garden to talk about the new project. While conversing with Vasu, MGR heard a bang on his left ear. He saw M.R.Radha pointing the gun, blood was oozing out, MGR tried to stop the blood flow and felt dizzy, he staggered and reached his car and motioned his driver to take him to hospital.
And what happened next? how MGR dealt with the incident? how MGR felt about the results of the general election? all these are given below by his personal bodyguard K.P.Ramakrishnan. He was with our beloved leader MGR when he was convalescing in Government General Hospital.
