Tamil Nadu ex-Chief Minister Jayalalithaa passed away in 2016. Several attempts have been made to make a film on her life story and a bunch of announcements too stepped out. Vishnu Induri, young Tollywood producer who produced NTR’s biopic recently acquired the rights of her life story and took the project forward. AL Vijay is on board to direct the film and Baahubali writer V Vijayendra Prasad penned the script. The pre-production work of the film is in the final stages and the makers now locked the female lead.
Bollywood beauty Kangana Ranaut is in talks from some time for the challenging role and she signed the film on spot. An official announcement came out on the eve of Kangana’s birthday. The film is titled Thalaivi and will start rolling from June this year. The film will be made on a staggering budget of Rs 100 crores and will be made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages. The movie will have its release during the first quarter of 2020.
