The palatial Annai Illam in the Chevalier Sivaji Street, T Nagar, Chennai is famous for more than one reason. Firstly, it was where the legend of Tamil cinema Sivaji Ganesan lived and it still continues to be the abode for his family members. Secondly the Lord Ganesha temple in front of the house is also very popular and Sivaji Ganesan always paid his obeisance to the deity whenever he was in town and whenever he started a new project. The tradition is being followed by his descendants too and the temple had its consecration this morning which was a grand affair. This function was attended by Super star Rajinikanth, Ajithkumar, Radhika along with other family members of Sivaji household and from the film fraternity.
