The movie is directed by AL Vijay and is titled Thalaivi. Special Hollywood makeup artists are to be brought in. Kangana is now putting on extra weight to get her role right and she is even getting a Tamil teacher to learn the language. Speaking about it, director Vijay said that Kangana was the first choice to portray JJ. The film is to be made in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi. "The story begins from Jaya madam’s first film in Kannada Chinnada Kombe when she was 16.
It will focus on how Jayalalithaa Amma reigned supreme in a male-dominated world. Her knowledge, wisdom, and intelligence were incomparable which made her the Iron Lady that she was. That was my main inspiration to make a biopic on her."Music is by GV Prakash and he has already started working on the compositions.
