Arvind Swami is known to all to play the role of the late Tamil Nadu CM, MG Ramachandran (MGR) in Vijay's Thalaivi. The film, a biopic of the late actress and former TN CM, J Jayalalithaa (often referred to as Amma), is led by Kangana Ranaut. Today, on the anniversary of MGR's birth, the team came out with this first look of Arvind Swami as MGR.
Ask Vijay about the look and he says, "In an interview, Amma had said that her mother and MGR were the two most important people in her life. We've made sure we're doing everything we can to get MGR's portrayal right on the screen. Arvind Swami has completely transformed himself into a role. He started preparing for this role about three months before we actually started shooting."
