    Chief Minister (CM) of Tamil Nadu (1991-1996; 2001; 2002-2006; 2011-2014; 2015- )
    Became a member of the Rajya Sabha, elected from Tamil Nadu, from 1984 to 1989
    Credited in over 140 Indian movies throughout the late sixties and early eighties, including 'Vennira Aadai,' 'Chandhrodhayam,' 'Izzat,' 'Adimai Penn,' 'Engirundho Vandhaal,' 'Thanga Gopuram,' 'Pattikada Pattanama,' 'Sri Krishna Satya,' 'Raman Thediya Seethai,' 'Suryagandhi,' and 'Thirumangalyam'
    Her name is extremely difficult to pronounce.
    She liked to bathe in public, as CM.
    She became morbidly overweight in her later years.
    She was pressured into signing on with Tamil Films because her character actress-mom wasn't getting enough work.
    She was caught spying on actor Marudhur Ramachandran, whom she had a crush on, through a pair of binoculars.
    She is the legislative author of the controversial 'Cradle Baby Scheme,' in India.
    She was first elected after riding a wave of sympathy towards the Indian National Congress following the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.
    It also helped that she was close friends with - and co-star of - Indian film star Marudhur Gopalan Ramachandran (MGR), who had also served as the Tamil CM for three terms. He introduced her to politics (although she claimed he had nothing to do with it).
    She built a cult following by promoting welfarism (called 'Brand Amma' by constituents).
    She holds the Guinness Book world record for hosting the ‘largest wedding banquet/reception’ (she organized an extravagantly lavish wedding for her ‘foster son’ Sudhagaran, during her first CM term).
    She was voted out in 1996, due to what was later called 'a wave of anti-incumbency sentiment,' coinciding with allegations of malfeasance against her and her team.
    She became the first incumbent chief minister in India to be disqualified from holding office due to a criminal conviction on corruption charges.
    It wasn't until 2001, that she added an additional 'a' to the spelling of her name, apparently for 'numerological reasons.'
    Her father committed suicide, in 1950, after squandering the family's considerable wealth.
    She is proficient in English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Hindi and Malayalam.
    She was an accomplished dancer who learnt Bharatnatyam when she was just 3.
    She was forbade from even watching her first movie, by her mother.
    She became the first Indian star to be seen wearing sleeveless blouses.
    She was a trendsetter whose white evening gown she wore in her debut film inspired the 'vennira aadai' fashion craze.
    She received six Filmfare Awards for Best Actress over a seven year period (between 1965 and 1973).
    She encountered sexism in her early political career, and was even assaulted on the grand stage of Tamil Nadu assembly by a mob (which tore sari).
    She arranged low cost mass weddings for the poor and members of the lower-castes.
    She headed off disaster relief efforts after the outbreak of the 2005 Southeast Asia Tsunami, including in neighboring areas.
    She passed laws ensuring free medical checkups in villages for poor to prevent outbreak of disease.
    She is arguably India's only contemporary leader to successfully build a 'cult of personality' among followers (outside of Narendra Modi).
    She was hospitalized for respiratory problems after initially being diagnosed with dehydration (Oct. 2016).
