Several filmmakers announced projects based on late leader J Jayalalitha's life soon after her death in December 2016. But looks like filmmaker A Priyadhaarshini just beat them to the race. The debutant director first announced her biopic on the late leader in September and now has released the first look of the film.
The director shared the first poster on Twitter recently which features actress Nithya Menen as the young Jayalalitha.
The director in an earlier interview had stated that Menen had been cast for the leading role and that the film would officially go on the floors on February 24, 2019, coinciding with Jayalalithaa’s birthday.
The producers, Papertale Pictures, timed the release of the poster of the film on the second anniversary of the late leader.
Menen plays the late leader in a new biopic helmed by A Priyadhaarshini.
