There has been a lot of buzz around the upcoming film Thalaivi. The film has created enthusiasm and excitement not only among Kangana’s fans but for everyone as the film is based on the life of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalithaa. It will be interesting to see Kangana in late Jayalalithaa’s shoes.
The film which will be made in three languages – Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu has finally gone on the floors. The shooting of the film began yesterday. The makers of the film took to social media to announce the commencing of the shoot of the film.

From learning Tamil to taking on dance lessons and even opting for top-notch prosthetics, Kangana has been working hard for her role.
The film is reportedly in troubled waters as Jayalalithaa’s niece Deepa Jayakumar has approached Madras High Court seeking a stay on the film. Deepa has stated in her affidavit that AL Vijay, the director of Thalaivi, has not taken her consent for the film.
She feels some facts could have been presented in a wrong manner that could portray Jayalalithaa in a bad light. She wants to ensure some sort of guarantee from the director regarding the portrayal of the late CM. She wants the court to intervene to ensure that the director are stating the facts only.
Apart from Kangana, the film will also feature Arvind Swami as MGR. As per reports, actor Prakash Raj has been approached for the role of CM Karunanidhi. The film is slated to release in 2020.
