As a continuation to the `Flash from the past' series, herewith we present a connection between MGR and Rajini.MGR was so much impressed with our thalaivar's 100th film Sri Raghavendra. So,he announced complete exemption of entertainment tax to the film. (MGR must have done this under request from RM Veerappan who was Hindu Endownment minister then in MGR's cabinet.)
Really this announcement was a boost to that film.
Find the ad of Kavithalaya which came in a weekly that time which thanked MGR, the then Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
