Now, Kangana is all set to get into the shoes of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa, who passed away in 2016. The biopic is reportedly titled ‘Thalaivi’. This film is going to be directed by AL Vijay.

Recently, it was said that the actress is being paid Rs 24 crore for the film. A source was quoted by an Entertainment website as saying, “Kangana is being paid to the tune of Rs 24 crore for the bilingual project, which will be made in Hindi and Tamil. The makers are sure that her star power will help reach a pan-India audience. The producers have already signed a contract with her.”

However, AL Vijay, the director of the film, had denied such reports. He termed the development as ‘fake news.’

Vishnu Vardhan Induri, who is the producer of the film has reacted to the rumours. He said regarding the remuneration of Rs 24 crore, “Kangana deserves every bit of remuneration she is getting, we are very happy to have her on our team, but the details can’t be disclosed. It’s a matter between the talent and the producer; no one else is authorised to talk about it.”

It would be interesting to see how Kangana plays the character of the late J Jayalalithaa. The former Tamil Nadu CM was adored by masses for her welfare schemes.
