Sri Shaila Mahathme (Kannada: ಶ್ರೀ ಶೈಲ ಮಹಾತ್ಮೆ) is a 1961 Indian Kannada film, directed by Aroor Pattabhi and produced by Neerlahalli Thalikerappa. The film stars Rajkumar, Dikki Madhavarao, Balakrishna and Hanumanthachar in lead roles along with J.Jayalalitha and her mother Sandhya in small roles.The film had musical score by T A Kalyanam.
J.Jayalalitha danced as the child artist in a song from the film. She had accompanied her mother Sandhya, who was playing a supporting role in the movie, to the studios and the producer Neerlahalli Thalikerappa and director Aroor Pattabhi were looking for a child artiste to play the Goddess Parvathy in a school drama scene in the film as the original girl who was supposed to dance could not come on the day of schedule. Aroor Pattabhi asked Sandhya, if he could make Jayalalitha dance in the small sequence and Sandhya agreed and thereby Jayalalitha made her debut as the child artiste in Kannada films with this film.
The music was composed by TA. Kalyanam.
