Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is all set to play the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha in the upcoming biopic ‘Thalaivi.’ Apart from Kangana, the film will also feature Arvind Swami as MGR.
The film which will be made in three languages – Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu has started rolling today. The makers of the film have taken to social media to announce the commencing of the shoot of the film.
From learning Tamil to taking on dance lessons and even opting for top-notch prosthetics, Kangana has been working hard for her role.
The film is reportedly in troubled waters as Jayalalithaa’s niece has approached Madras High Court seeking a stay on the film. Deepa has stated in her affidavit that AL Vijay, the director of the ‘Thalaivi’, has not taken her consent for the film.
As per reports, actor Prakash Raj has been approached for the role of CM Karunanidhi. The film is slated for release in 2020.
