This throwback video of Jayalalithaa with Simi Garewal from 1999 spill beans on Amma’s life.
Speaking about the interview with Indian Express, Simi Garewal tells
The year was 1999. My impression of Jayalalithaa was confined to what I had read about her in the media. I was warned she could be imperious and difficult. Even temperamental.
The reality of meeting and talking to Jayalalithaaji was something I could not have anticipated. The media had tried to analyse her as a politician and I felt it was far more important to try and understand her first as a human being.
