Jayalalitha’s biopic starring Kangana Ranaut has been the talk of the nation since the time it was announced. Titled Thalaivi, the teaser of the movie was released recently revealing Kangana’s look as Jayalalitha. Kangana’s look was slammed as fake, pretentious and cheap by the netizens.
Jayalalitha’s life has been truly an epic one and it would be very exciting to witness her story on the big screen. Sasikala was one of the most important persons in her life and everyone was curious about which actor will bag Sasikala’s role. Finally, the name has been revealed and it is none other than Priyamani.
Director Vijay felt that Priyamani would be an apt choice to play the part. Producer Vishnu Induri is making the film in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi and therefore he needed someone with a pan-Indian appeal. National Award Winning actress Priyamani fits the bill perfectly.
Sasikala had a huge impact on Jayalalitha’s personal life, so Priyamani’s role is said to be very challenging. The film is due for release next year.
