How to retrieve text from TStringGrid when select it

I have a stringgrid named 'Sg1'

It has 6 columns and many rows depending on data loaded into it.  I need to be able to click any cell in column 0 and have the text returned as a string.
For eg:

Title                        Genre                     Actor(1)                    Actor(2)                  Actor(3)                  Location                    Mad Max                Action                     Mel Gibson               Tina Turner                                              Home

I have the top row fixed and the next row(s) has the data in them.  I need to be able to click on any cell in Col(0) the title column and have delphi return a string of the text that is in that cell.  So if a user clicks on cells[0,5] it will show me/them the text in that cell but if they click on cells[1,5] it will not do anything.  I only need col '0' to be active.

Thanks in advance
