Movie on Jayalalithaa:  HC issues notice to AL Vijay, GVM

Following a petition filed by former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa's niece Deepa against making movie on her aunt without her consent, the Madras High Court today issued notice to filmmaker A L Vijay and Gautham Vasudev Menon. A L Vijay is planning a movie titled Thalaivi starring Kangana Ranaut as Jayalalithaa. Gautham Vasudev Menon has made a web series on former CM starring Ramya Krishnan in the titular role.

Submitting that she was a legal heir of the late AIADMK chief, Deepa in a civil suit claimed that AL Vijay, producer Vishnu Vardhan Induri and director Gowtham Vasudev Menon did not have any legal right to produce the movie on the life and times of Jayalalithaa.
