MGR - Jayalalithaa starrer 'Adimaippenn' is back!

Veteran director Bharathiraja has been approached by producer Aditya Baradwaj to direct the biopic of Jayalalithaa. 

Last year, the producer announced a project titled ‘Thaai: Puratchi Thalaivi’ but it didn’t go on floors for various reasons. Recently, Aditya met Bharathiraja and asked him to helm the biopic.

Director Vijay is already working on a biopic of Jayalalithaa for Vibri media and Mysskin’s erstwhile associate Priyadhaarshini also recently announced her version of Jayalalithaa biopic.

In an interaction, Priyadhaarshini said that she is planning to highlight the loneliness existed in Jayalalithaa’s life and how the late Chief Minister single-handedly faced all the hurdles in her life. Priyadhaarshini says she will announce the cast and crew of her film on September 20.

A leading OTT is also said to have given green signal to an interesting web series based on Jayalalithaa’s life.
