Jayalalithaa’s biopic titled ‘Thalaivi’ starring Kangana Ranaut is underway. The film is slated for worldwide release on June 26, 2020. The first look of MGR played by Arvind Swami in ‘Thalaivi’ has been unveiled. Today is Late MGR’s 103rd birth anniversary. 

Vijay, director of the film says, “Finally, we felt Arvind Swami would befittingly look perfect. In simple words, we are now completely drenched in extreme astonishment to find him give immense life to the legendary character. Apart from our inputs, he spent sumptuous time and energy in getting to know more deeply about the legend’s life. Of course, MGR is still the most loved leader of zillions or else how would he become the only actor to be the recipient of the Bharat Ratna Award. So, it’s been a journey of intense dedication for all of us in the team to pictorially represent his adorable deeds in celluloid version.”

Produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh, the biopic is being made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages.
