On this day in 1928, Sivaji 


 was born as Ganesamoorthy in 


, a town in the southeastern state of Tamil Nadu, India.

At a young age of 7, he left home and joined a theatre group, where he started playing child and female roles and then went on to play lead roles.

In December 1945, Ganesan made a name for himself–literally–with his theatrical portrayal of 17th-century Indian King Shivaji.

He carried the crown as “Sivaji” as he conquered the world of acting.

The late actor then made his on-screen debut in a 1952 film “Parasakthi", the first of his over 300 films spanning a nearly five-decade cinematic career.

Renowned for his expressive voice and diverse performances in Tamil-language cinema, Ganesan quickly ascended to international fame.

His best-known blockbusters include the trendsetting 1961 film “Pasamalar". It is an emotional, family story considered one of Tamil cinema’s crowning achievements.

In 1960, Ganesan made history as the first Indian performer to win Best Actor at an international film festival for his historical movie “Veerapandiya Kattabomman,” one of his biggest blockbusters with people remembering the dialogues from the movie even today.

The 1964 film “Navarthri" was Ganesan’s 100th film in which he portrayed a record-breaking, nine different roles.

Towards the end of his career in 1995, France awarded him its highest decoration, Chevalier of the National Order of the Legion of Honour.

The Indian government in 1997 honoured him with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award which is India's highest award in the field of cinema.

Today, his legacy is carried on for international audiences through the performances of the many contemporary Indian acting greats who cite Ganesan as a major inspiration.
