Perhaps one of the most candid interviews that the late J Jayalalithaa gave was the one to Simi Garewal, in the 90s, on her popular chat show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal. The actress-politician spoke about her life before she joined politics, her equation with MGR and her childhood. But a moment from the episode that is, for sure, to be cherished for eternity is when Amma sang ‘Aaja Sanam‘ at the behest of the host.
When Garewal asked her which was her favourite song, she said there were so many and listed, ‘Ae Malik Tere Bande Hum‘ and ‘Aaja Sanam‘. When Garewal requested her to croon a few lines, she initially said a ‘no’ but after a little coaxing the politician sang two lines of the popular song from the film Chori Chori.
This one will stay forever in the hearts of her followers.
