M.k.muthu Family Photos

Murasoli Maran, Karunanidhi's nephew and his sister's son, was a Union Minister in three separate central governments, in charge of Urban Development in the V.P. Singh government, Industry in the Gowda and Gujral governments, and finally Commerce and Industry under Vajpayee. His sons Kalanithi and Dayanidhi Maran succeeded him.

M K Muthu (70) did not attend Rajaji Hall due to health concerns. Muthu was Karunanidhi's political heir in the early 1970s, but he later launched him into films as a counter to AIADMK founder M G Ramachandran. Muthus' film career, however, never really took off. Muthu then began to distance himself from Karunanidhi. When Muthu fell on hard times in the late 1980s, it was Karunanidhi's arch-rival and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa who extended financial aid to him, raising eyebrows in the state. But the schism between father and son that had existed for over two decades seemed to vanish in 2009, when Karunanidhi visited Muthu in a hospital where he was receiving treatment.

Following his father's death, he joined the Original Boys drama troupe. Later, he entered the film industry, first as an actor, then as a director, producer, and editor. He also had an affair with actress Jayalalita. MGR married Bargavi, also known as Thangamani, who died of illness at a young age. He later married Sathanandavathi, who died of tuberculosis. Following the death of his second wife, M. G. R. married V. N. Janaki, a former Tamil film actress, as his third wife. Janaki divorced Ganapati Bhat in order to marry MGR. MGR made his film debut in 1935 in Sati Leelavati[6], directed by Ellis Dungan, an American-born film director[7], and dominated Tamil cinema during the 1950s and 1960s with a string of blockbusters. MGR's big break came in the 1947 film Rajakumaari, written by M. Karunanidhi and starring in romance or action films. After Malai Kallan, he rose to super-stardom in 1954. Later, this film was used as a model for other films by portraying him as the savior of the poor and oppressed.

On May 20, 2011, she was arrested in connection with the 2G scam, which cost the Indian government 1.76 lakh crore. According to the CBI charge sheet, she owned a 100 percent stake in her family's Kalaignar TV. The CBI claimed that she directed $2 billion (US$36.2 million) to Kalaignar TV with the assistance of then-Telecom Minister A. Raja. On the other hand, on December 21, 2017, a special CBI Court presided over by Justice O P Saini acquitted all of the accused in the 2G Scam, including A. Raja and Kanimozhi.
