Ramarajan hails from a small town Melur situated near Sivagangai. He grew up from a Cinema entrance ticket validator and plantain seller to a cinema producer. Known for his films with rustic simplicity, he had disappeared from filmdom following a string of failures. His films were so popular and made big at box-offices that they were equally competent to Superstar Rajinikanth and Kamalhassan's films. Considered as the man of the rural audiences, he was nicknamed Vasool Chakravathi. Many of his films based on village-based subjects were a big hit in B and C centres. He is known for his dark shirts and colourful costumes. His film Karagattakaran was a block buster which ran for 365 days in Madurai and in Chennai.
He took a plunge in politics and managed to become an MP. He was elected to the Lok Sabha from the Tiruchendur constituency on the AIADMK ticket in 1998. His film and political career both failed for a certain period. His last low budget film Medhai got released on 2012 which largely went unnoticed and failed.
Ramarajan fell in love with actress Nalini and they got married in 1987. However, they divorced citing differences in their relationship and got divorced in 2000. They have twin children, daughter Aruna, and son Arun born in 1988. His Daughter Aruna is married to Ramesh Subramanian on 6 May 2013. His Son Arun is married to Pavithra on 25 April 2014.
