It’s raining biopics in Bollywood and by the looks of it, yet another is going to be announced soon. After the nation lost the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, a biopic on her life is now in the pipeline. Producers of the NTR biopic, Vibra Media are currently working on her biopic which they are planning to launch on her birthday, 24th of February. The film which will be directed by AL Vijay will witness actors from the South as well as Bollywood and a recent report suggests that a Bollywood actress will be essaying the titular role.

As per recent reports, Vidya Balan is amongst the top contenders to essay the role of Amma.

Talking about the project, Vishnu Vardhan Induri of Vibra Media had said,

We at Vibra have the vision of telling real stories, and director Vijay is overseeing the pre-production work of the film himself as per our vision.

Brinda Prasad Adusumilli, the director of Vibra media spoke to IE and added,

Madam Dr J. Jayalalitha was one of those rare few regional leaders who went on to become a force to reckon within Indian politics. Her life is an inspiration for women folk around the world. This film will be a tribute to her achievements both in cinema and politics. We will launch the movie on her birthday, February 24. The first look of the film will be released on that very day.

Apart from the Jayalalithaa and NTR biopic, the production house is also bankrolling the Ranveer Singh starrer 83’ which is being directed by Kabir Khan.

I really think that Vidya would be a perfect fit for this role, what are your thoughts about it?
