Jayalalithaa is an iron lady who fought against all odds with her beauty and brain to become a top political leader from an actress. It is no ordinary journey to become a CM and president of nationally influential party. She made thorny men bow to her.
Surprisingly, no filmmaker attempted to make her biopic, apparently they might have feared her fiery. Maniratnam tried toying with her role in Iddharu. Aishwarya Rai portrayed Jayalalithaa inspired role in that film. Now again, the Bollywood diva is likely to reprise Jayalalithaa in her biopic.
Acclaimed filmmakers like Bharathi Raja, Priyadarshan and AL Vijay are planning to comeup with their own version of biopic. Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is believed to be top contender.
Latest grapevine is that Anushka Shetty also has been approached. If Aiswharya accepts the project, it will get hype at national level. Anushka too has gained pan-Indian recognition with Baahubali, so it will be a safe bet too. On the flipside, makers are also considering Nayanthara and Ramya Krishnan.
