There was a time where Tamil film industry was dominated by three super stars named MGR,Sivaji and Gemini during the 50's and mid 60's. (let me mention as first generation). Even though actors like Muthuraman, SS Rajendran etc.were in the industry and either enacting second role to the main hero or at times as Heroes. Then came two superstars and emerged as super heroes and established their career individually. They are none other than the South Indian Sean Connery Jai Shankar also popularly known as Makkal Kalaignar and Silver jubilee star Purakshi Kalaignar - Kalai nilavu Ravichandran. (let me call as second generation). So quiet for a long time 5 permanent heroes were dominating the industry. In between there is also a good star named Sivakumar who plays as hero as well as supporting hero. Jai, popularly called by everybody is a perfect gentleman to the core as mentioned by late Balachandar. He fits for almost any kind of role. His performance in nootrukku nooru, maanavan, kuzhandaiyum daivamum, vijaya, anpusahodararkal, vaayillapoochi, ullathil kuzhandaiyedi, aasirvadam, kizhakkum merkkum sandikkintrana,Oonjalaadum uravugal and many more are excellent. His plus point is speed in action, rich and sharp voice (next to Sivaji ganeshan) in dialogue delivery, and perfect timing in shooting
schedule, and he was known as producers darling.There are lot of records to his credit. He is the only actor who has acted with maximum heroines (Like Preem nazeer in malayalam or Jeetendra in hindi films) at least 70 plus heroines. Even in some films where he acted in double rolls, manorama, pandaribhai etc were acted with him. He is the person who appeared in more song sequences when compared to his number of films. There was a time in one friday his four films were released which was also a record. No body can replace his image as a James bond or a cowboy like Dean martin. Many top heroes of yesteryears and the current heroes tried to act as James bond but miserably failed. His image of bond and cow boy cannot be erased from the people
because he was so lively to the character. Imagine who can give such a memorable performance in nootrukku noor. No chance. Oh what an innocent acting in a very natural way. I always wonder why he was not honoured by giving him the best actor in the National film award. There are so many awards given to many heroes left and right but in his case it was totally injustice done by our country. Even the great Shivaji ganeshan was also not honoured by our India Govt. In the fight sequences in films he is the best by nature in all respect. He always want to do fights in the realistic way. He avoid dupe maximum. I dont know if any body has written any book about his life history. I was told his memory is very sharp. He always help the people without any publicity. Now a days the third or fourth generaion of the industry people hardly remember him or speak about him. One thing, these people should remember they have all grown in the industry only after seing the movies of Jai shankar and Ravichandar the ex-super stars of tamil films. I strongly feel there should be some statue for him as a token of respect who has entertained the film industry for a period of 35 years or atleast some award in his name. As rightly people use to say he is the Kaliyuga Karnan.
So never ever forget these super stars.

Jai was a simple downtoearth
Egoless cheerful actor and I was his fan since iravum pagalum days.one actor who respected all his fans and has entertained people in 70s and 80.
He has silently helped so many students for continuing education,
Poor people -very Good Samaritan
God took him early and he deserves a lot real Paarl vallal-unfortunately he was attacked by big policians threatening his career -I can never forget him in my life- one day I will meet his son and talk about his gr8 dad

If you follow Jaishankar "s early career many of his movies were major box office hits with good storylines IRAVUM PAGALUM , KUZHANDAYUM DEIVAMUM , PATANATHIL BOOTHAM , NEE, YAAR NEE, POOVA THALAIYA and NOOTRUKKU NOORU .His career downslided to low budget flops in the mid seventies when he collided with MGR .The future chief minister saw the younger star as a threat and sent a subtle warning to top producers of that period to stop investing in movies starring Jaishankar. The same fate happened to his contemporary Ravichandran .

I have been watching several films of Jai Shanker in my childhood and he has impressed me a lot. Can anyone tell me if he had teamed up with Sarojadevi in any film?

jaishankar is a makkal kalaignar who earned super name in cine field unlike others.No jamesbond role has come in screen now as he played sucessfully on those days.He was no man's enemy but his short-living life is a miserable loss not only to the field also to the fans.He is ever-green ever-living smart actor

JAISANKAR WAS A DEDICATED ACTOR -NEVER HAVING ANY POLITICAL STAMP ALMOST SUITED TO ALL CHARECTORS.IN PERSONAL LIFE HE NEVER ADMIT THEIR GENERATION IN TO HIS CINEMA.HOWEVER ONE BECAME EYE SPECIALIST,OTHERS ALSO MAY BE IN GOOD CAREER/PROFESSION.
ALMOST HE RESPECTED ALL,ALL ARE WENT TO HIS CINEMA WITHOUT HESITATION.
