Veteran Tamil Actor S.S. Rajendran Dead (Filmography)

rajendranVeteran Tamil actor S.S. Rajendran, died of lung infection on Friday evening, after battling for life at a private hospital in Chennai. He was 85.

“He was admitted to Meenakshi Hospital yesterday in critical condition. He passed away this morning due to issues related to lung infection,” a family source told IANS.

Born in 1928, popularly known as SSR, he made his debut with the hit Parasakthi in 1952. He was soon a cult figure in the 1950s and 60s who thrilled the fans by his breath-taking dialogue delivery and for his Dictaphone Tamil pronunciation, a feat only matched by the thespian Sivaji Ganesan.

Rajendran’s well-known films include Ratha Kanner, Rangoon Radha and Sivagangai Seemai. He has acted in more than 50 Tamil films and was known for his own style and was on one among the top Tamil heroes like M.G. Ramachandran and Sivaji Ganeshan during the 1960s and 70s.

Called Latchiya Nadigar, he also wrote songs, scripted movies and directed 3 films Thangarathinam, Alli and Manimagudam in which J. Jayalalitha acted with him.  After his film career, Rajendran was also involved in politics and he had built SSR Pankajam theatre, film studio and a recording theatre.
