Personal Life

Gemini Ganesan, at 19, was first married to Alamelu, who he fondly called as "Bopji". She is considered his first and only legal wife. He later married actresses Pushpavalli and Savitri. He is survived by seven daughters and a son. Alamelu and Ganesan have four daughters: Three of them - Revathy, Kamala and Jeya are medical doctors, the fourth Narayani is a journalist at The Times of India. Ganesan has two daughters by Pushpavalli - Bollywood actress Rekha, and Radha. The latter acted in a few Tamil films, but then opted for marriage and migration to the United States. Savithri and Ganesan have two children: a daughter Vijayasamundeeswari who is a Physiotherapist, and acted in films as a child artiste “Baby Savithri”, and Ganesan’s only son Satheesh Kumar. Ganesan's fourth and last wife, whom he married at the age of 78 was a then 36-year old Julianna. According to one report, "Juliana left her job and people, to be near her husband, who said he needed a younger wife to attend on him, as first-wife Babji too was advancing in years." Ganesan however publicly admitted that he was closest to his first wife Bopji, than Pushpavalli or Savithri. The actor had noted in his autobiography Vaazhkai Padagu, "Somehow, I seemed to attract women who were in distress."

Famous quotes related to personal life:

    The dialectic between change and continuity is a painful but deeply instructive one, in personal life as in the life of a people. To ‘see the light’ too often has meant rejecting the treasures found in darkness.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
