Actor Aravind Swamy who was last seen in Mani Rathnam’s CCV in Tamil might turn MGR for AL Vijay’s Thalaivi.
With the project due to go on the floors from October, the makers are busy finalising rest of the cast and it is believed Arvind Swamy has been signed, but an official confirmation is still awaited.
Thalaivi, which will be directed by Vijay, stars Kangana Ranaut as Jayalalithaa and the biopic will be made in multiple languages.
MGR played an important role in the life and career of Jayalalithaa.
Apparently, it was after great contemplation the makers zeroed in on Arvind Swamy.
The project was announced along with its title and first-look poster on February 25, on the 71st anniversary of Jayalalithaa. GV Prakash will take care of music whereas Nirav Shah will handle the camera.
