Veteran Telugu filmmaker Dasari Narayana Rao has informed that the script work of his biopic on the Late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is about to start. Speaking to IANS, Rao added, “The biopic idea has just started to take shape. The scripting work is just getting started. Jayalalithaa’s story is fascinating, inspiring and it deserves to be told. I haven’t thought about whom to cast yet as I can’t zero in on anyone without completing the script first.”
The biopic will be made in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. According to media reports, the film has already been registered with the title Amma as Jayalalithaa was fondly called by her supporters and loyalists. Names of southern stars like Ramya and Trisha are doing the rounds to play the late actress-turned-politician though, Rao says he is yet to finalise the cast.
