J.Jayalalithaa, CM of Tamil Nadu was loved and hated. She was known to be bold, tough, mysterious and larger than the life’s personality. This is one side of her what you know; the another side was seen in 1999 in an interview with Simi Garewal. This interview in many ways enlightens the mystery behind the name called AMMA. In this interview, she opens up her heart and talks about how she has never cried and has not lost her temper in public. She talks about how she was brought up in a very traditional and a orthodox way. She talks about how she was a shy girl when she entered politics and hated limelight; she was a behind the scene girl.
Garewal managed to make Amma talk about her childhood, which she spent pining for her mother, who was always away for shoots as she was an actress. She recalls the times when she had a crush on cricketer Nari Contractor and film star Shammi Kapoor. After some gentle push from Garewal, Amma sang some lines of her favorite song, Aaja Sanam Madhur Chandni Mein Hum in a very nervous manner.
Jayalalithaa known as Amma died today but she will always be remembered as the tough lady in Man’s world!
