To make the fourth of its kind after director Priyadharshini, AL Vijay, Gautham Menon, a biopic on the life of former CM Jayalalitha was announced recently.
Titled as Sasilalitha, the movie is directed by Kethireddy Jagadishwara Reddy, and it talks about the relationship between Sasikala and Jayalalitha from Sasikala’s point of view.
The makers are in talks with Kajol and Amala Paul to play the roles of Jayalalithaa and Sasikala, respectively.
“We have sent them the script, and are awaiting their response. I am especially looking forward to Kajol’s response, as I have worked with her late father-in-law, Veeru Devgan, in films for Padmalaya Studios. I will once again narrate the script to them in person,” says Kethireddy.
Meanwhile, the research is underway for the movie and it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
