Biopic of veteran politician and actress Jayalalitha Thalaivi will be hitting theaters on 10th September 2021. Kangana Ranaut confirmed the same on her Instagram handle. The movie shooting was completed way back and was postponed due to the pandemic. The movie will be released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu and is the first trilingual film of actress Kangana Ranaut.
The Thalaivi was the most sought-after one as Jayalalitha was a prominent personality and her popularity in the country is immense. She served as the CM of Tamil Nadu for 2 terms and her life was full of controversies. She was associated with MGR and it was he who introduced her to politics. In a career that spanned for nearly 2 decades, she worked in many Tamil movies and also did one Bollywood film alongside Dharmendra. She was also a cricket buff and has told in her interview that she was a huge fan of ace Indian cricketer Naari Contractor. It would be interesting to see what parts of her life are depicted in the film.
The Thalaivi script is written by KV Vijayendra Prasad who also wrote the script for Baahubali. It is directed by Vijay who is one of the most notable directors of Tamil films. Kangana was last seen in Panga which didn’t do well at the box office. Thalaivi is one of the most awaited films and the makers postponed the film as they were waiting for the theaters to re-open. After Thailavi, Kangana will be seen in Dhaakad as agent Agni.
The Thalaivi shooting of the film is completed and will release at the end of this year. Kangana Ranaut is currently shooting for the Tejas and has also turned producer for the upcoming web series Tiku Weds Sheru. Expectations from the film Thailavi are quite high as the film is a biopic on Jayalalitha. There were many controversies that surrounded her life as she has been accused of corruption and was also sent to jail.
Kangana Ranaut has been highly vocal about her film and left no stone unturned in promoting her film. She is highly active on social media these days and will soon be seen promoting her film on various TV shows. It would be interesting to see what critics and other Bollywood stars say about her film. She has often accused other Bollywood actors of ignoring her films but she is unaffected by all. Not just in local Hindi shows, but she will also be seen promoting her films in various Tamil and Telugu shows as well. She has worked in Tamil and Telugu films in the past and she is not an unknown commodity over there. She has her fans all across the country and is also favored by many BJP leaders.
Her most recent controversy was the one with BMC who demolished some parts of her house and office. She knows how to be in the news and it won’t come as a surprise if she creates some controversy once again. She knows when to hit the right chords and would be interesting to see the trade figures that her film generates.
