jayalalitha (born) is an Indian actor and politician who held the position of Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu for over fourteen years between 1991 and 2016. From 1989 he was Secretary General of India's Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), apart Dravidian whose frame revered him as Amma (mother), Puratchi Thalaivi (revolutionary leader) and Thanga Tharagai (golden girl). Her critics in the media and the opposition have accused her of promoting a personality cult and demanding the absolute loyalty of AIADMK legislators and ministers who have often prostrated themselves before her.

In the mid-1960s, Jayalalithaa became a leading film actress. Although she entered the profession reluctantly, on her mother's exhortation to support the family, Jayalalithaa worked extensively. She appeared in 140 films between 1961 and 1982, mainly in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages. Jayalalithaa was praised for her versatility as an actor and her dancing skills, winning the nickname of "queen of Tamil cinema" . Among his frequent co-stars was Mr. G. Ramachandran, or MGR, a Tamil cultural icon who took advantage of his immense popularity with the masses in a successful political career. In 1982, when MGR was Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa joined AIADMK, the party he founded. His political ascent was rapid; In Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Indian Parliament. After MGR's death in 1987, Jayalalithaa proclaimed himself his political heiress and, after fighting the faction led by Janaki Ramachandran, MGR's widow, became the sole leader of the AIADMK. After the elections of 1989, she became leader of the opposition to the government led by DMK led by Karunanidhi, his pet peeve.

In 1991, Jayalalithaa became the first minister, the youngest of Tamil Nadu, for the first time. It has gained a reputation for a punitive work ethic and for centralizing the power of the state among a coterie of bureaucrats; its Council of Ministers, which was widely ceremonial in nature. The success of the baby cradle program, which allowed mothers to offer their newborns anonymously for adoption, emerged during this period. Jayalalithaa, who was involved in public demonstrations of wealth, culminated in a sumptuous marriage for his adopted son in 1995. In the 1996 elections, AIADMK was almost annihilated to the hustings; Jayalalithaa herself lost her seat. The new Karunanidhi government filed several corruption cases against her, and she had to spend time in prison. His fortune resumed in the 1998 general elections, with AIADMK becoming a key component of the 1998-1999 government of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee; his backwalking from support reversed him and triggered another general election just a year later.

The AIADMK returned to power in 2001, although Jayalalithaa was personally struck out as a result of the corruption cases. In September 2001, she was declared ineligible and forced to hand over the presidency to the loyalist O. Panneerselvam. After his acquittal six months later, Jayalalithaa returned as Chief Minister to complete his term. Noted for his pitiless political opponents, many of whom were arrested in the midnight raids, his government became unpopular. Another period (2006-11) in the opposition followed, before Jayalalithaa was sworn in as AIADMK swept the 2011 assembly election. His government has a special attention to its extensive welfare program, which includes several subsidized "Amma" branded products such as canteens, bottled water and salt. Three years after her incarceration, she was convicted on a disproportionate asset file, which made her disqualified from holding her position. She returned as Chief Minister after being acquitted in May 2015. In the 2016 elections she became the first Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu since MGR in 1984 to be re-elected.
