YG Mahendran Early Life

On January 9, 1950, Y. G. Mahendran was born to Yecha Gunja Parthasarathy and Rajalakshmi. Y.G.P. founded the UAA (United Amateur Artists) in 1952. They were one of the earliest theatre companies in Madras. He rose to prominence as a playwright due to the success of his theatre group.

The Padma Seshadri Group of Schools was founded by Mahendra’s mother, Mrs. Rajalakshmi. In 1959, a small thatched shed on the terrace of the Y.G.P. home in Nungambakkam became the site of what would become one of the best schools in India, providing a social service for the members of the Nungambakkam Recreation Club. People from all across the country flock there to get an education.

Since Mahendra came from a creative background, he has always had an appreciation for the stage. In school productions, he was frequently cast as the comic relief and received high marks for his roles. Graduating from Don Bosco Egmore, he continued his education at the University of Madras in Guindy and the A.C. College of Technology, where he earned his MBA. A chemical engineer by training, he went to college. Many predicted his future success in the film industry even while he was still in university. While still in high school, he began performing with his father’s theatre troupe, the United Amateur Artists.

That provided him the break he really needed. The early performances of some of his plays were attended by thousands upon thousands of people. Mahendra’s was a well-known brand in the community. He considered other career options, but ultimately decided to pursue acting full-time.
