The party was founded in 1972 by Maruthar Gopala-menon Rama-chandran (popularly known as MGR), a veteran star of the Tamil film industry ("Kollywood") and a popular politician, as a breakaway from the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) led by M. Karunanidhi, the then chief minister, owing to differences between the two. Relations between the two parties have been marked by mutual contempt. Till the time MGR, also known as Puratchi Thalaivar (Revolutionary Leader), was alive, the AIADMK continued to be dominated by one man, despite the presence of formidable leaders like V.R. Nedun-chezhiyan, R.M. Veer-appan, S. Thiru-navukka-rasu, and J. Jaya-lalitha.
