MGR at the wedding of films stars Nalini & Ramarajan

Ramarajan is a Tamil film actor who is specialised in acting films on village-based subjects. He is also known as Makkal Nayagan.


As an actor

Ramarajan was a very popular hero in the late 80's. He is known for his colourful costumes. He was the fashion icon for the farmers in the mid 80's.

He is from a small town Melur near Madurai and he is from Nadar caste, he grew up from a Cinema entrance ticket validater cum Plantain mandi to Cine producer. He always played the role of a simple village man in his movies and was ridiculed by the then Tamil media and perhaps even now. In all of his movies, he made it a point not to act in scenes that shows him as smoking/ consuming alcohol. The reason for this he attributed to being an ardent fan of actor Mr.M.G.Ramachandran, who had the same priciples. Also, none of his movies were Adult certified and hence suitable for family viewing. The movies he acted had social themes and less romantic scenes with the female lead.

His cine team, having Music Maestro Ilayaraaja, Goundamani, Senthil etc. produced a number of super hits.

Karakaatakaaran ran for more than a year in a Madurai cinema theatre.He was even called as rural superstar.

At the peak of his career, he decided to produce films, but was unsuccessful. Then he became an MP (AIADMK) of Lok Sabha in 1998. He was elected from Tiruchendur (a traditional stronghold for ex-minister Danushkoodi Adithan). Ramarajan defeated him and entered into the Lok Sabha. However he could not sustain victory in the political arena.

He is now acting in a low budget mediocre movie called methai produced by kalaimagal koodam.

Ramarajan married actress Nalini, after 2 kids and 20 years later they divorced. After divorce, Nalini is active starring in a line of Tamil TV serials.
