Kamal to play MGR in Jaya’s bio-pic?

Chennai: A couple of production houses have announced recently that they would make bio-pics on former Chief Minister J Jayalaithaa.

Interestingly, producer Aditya Bharadwaj had announced making one such film a few months ago itself and was even in talks with some of the leading ladies of Kollywood.

Now, we hear that Aditya has already begun the pre-production work of the film, and the project will be helmed by veteran director Bharathiraja.

Aditya said, “I have been working on this project for more than a year now, and it’s unfair if another production house comes up with the same annoucement.”

Sources say that Ilayaraja would compose music for this flick, which will go on floors in a couple of months.

Sources reveal that the makers are in talks with Kamal Haasan and Mohanlal to play a cameo in the film. “Kamal Haasan will be playing MGR in the Jayalalithaa’s biopic. However, he is yet to sign the project,” sources said.

A week ago, reports emerged that Vibri Media is planning a biopic on the late AIADMK supremo, and that Vijay would direct it. Also, director and producer Priyadhaarshini who is producing and helming Varalakshmi Sarathkumar’s upcoming flick Shakthi has announced that her production company Papertale Pictures will be making a movie on Jayalalithaa.
