Full Biography of Director T. Rajendar
Vijaya Thesingu Rajendar known as T. Rajendar or Usha Rajendar is a Tamil film actor and director as well as a composer, screenwriter, cinematographer, producer, singer,and playback singer. He is also a politician in Tamil Nadu, India.
T. Rajendar is married to former actress Usha and they have 3 children. He has two sons: Silambarasan, Kuralarasan and one daughter Ilakiya. His wife Usha Rajendar served as the Producer for his films like Kadhal Azhivathillai.
Rajendar started off in the Kollywood industry making successful films which included him as an actor, playback singer, dancer and scriptwriter. He gained popularity through his one-of-a-kind style of acting. Rajendar is well known for writing good heart touching lyrics and composing music in his movies and also using rhythmic Tamil dialogues throughout his movies. He normally serves as, but not limited to director, actor, songwriter, art director,production manager, playback singer.
During the 1980s all his movies were blockbusters running for years and the songs were also well appreciated. He is known for introducing new faces in all his movies and most of the Heroines who debuted in his movies made it big in South Cinema like Amala, Nalini, Jyothi, Jeevitha (Wife of Telugu star Rajasekhar), Mumtaj.
After some years, Rajendar\'s films started to decline in popularity because his films became too predictable, tending to follow the same storyline and oratory style of repetitous dialogues with little if any meaning. For example his films always contain a sentimental scene involving the hero\'s younger sister in distress, coupled with the same rhyming rhetoric and gestures.
Rajendar recently started his own web TV channel called \'Kural TV\' (Voice TV). Originally he wanted to start a 24 hour TV channel but could not due to problems arising while securing a license. The channel, apart from broadcasting his movies and speeches, tends to echo sentiments towards the plight of Tamils (especially women) in Sri Lanka.
Rajendar had started talking with \"common\" people through Skype and discussing latest politics in the recent years. Rajendar also distributes films under his home banner \'Simbu cine arts\'. His latest film distribution, as of mid-2011 is his son Silambarasan\'s film Vaanam which will be distributed in the Chennai and Madurai region.
