Can an actress and leader of a political party inspire filmmakers to an extent they make numerous celluloid versions on different platforms in India? Can a life be more colorful and multilayered to make a filmmaker take an element from it to make an entire movie?
Yes, Jayaram Jayalalithaa, the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and a great actress, did this in recent times. Three leading actresses are reprising the role of this giant lady, both in stature and popularity, on screen.
Gautham Vasudev Menon and Murugesan are making a web series about the Iron Lady, with veteran actress Ramya Krishnan donning the role of Jayalalithaa. Then we have the charming Kangana Ranaut playing the role in A.L. Vijay’s Thalaivi, the shoot of which already began.
Then we have a woman director, Priyadarshini, directing a movie about the late actress with Nithya Menen in the lead.
So, four new generation filmmakers are making three celluloid versions about the legendary leader’s life.
What better tribute is needed for a lady who lived her dream both in reel and real life?
