J Jayalalithaa ji was a renowned actress of her own time before she established her carrier as an politician in politics. She was always known for her strong beliefs and ideologies during her tenure. There was always a transparency in her actions and her thoughts which were seen in her tenure. Inspite of being a famous actress, she decided to serve the society by the means of ministry and therefore she came to be known as Amma because of her motherly behaviour she always shown towards her audience. She is one of the most loved politician and actress who is still alive in people’s heart in the form of transformations she brought during her tenure.

A woman has to face many hardships when she dreams of stepping out and makes her own identity. In a male dominated society, lot of courage, self belief and standing is required to make one’s own place. This biographical film aims at inspiring the women population at large because Jaya’s life have been no less than an inspiration for her followers and fans. A proper 8 months research was conducted before the filming began to know about her, her work, her ideology, her way of serving her audience. 

Earlier Vidya Balan was considered for the role, but Kangana Ranaut was finalised because she carries the same boldness, courage and strength as its required to play this role. Any biography when made aims at inspiring viewers to achieve something and to give some kind of moral values but the biography of Jayalalithaa will be more than this. She was a lady of principles and her opinions were not only considered but were given importance during her tenure. Her demise was a shock for the entire nation and since then she is being missed by her followers but through this biographical film audience will once again get to see the reflection of Jaya ji, her life, her struggle and her hard work in becoming what she was. 

Film has been dubbed in 3 languages especially in Tamil because her influence in Tamil Nadu is incomparable and unmatchable to any other well known personality. 

It will be an emotional phase to see this biographical film with Jaya ji already gone before its release but it will be an honour to watch it because being a female watching a female portraying the role of influential well known female personality is not only a matter of pride but also an inspiration to every women out there.

Film is expected to release in later months of 2021 once the theatres get back to their normal working. Thalaivi releasing soon in theatres near you.
