The ‘U’ certified movie will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi
The most-anticipated Kangana Ranaut starrer Thalaivii will be released on the big screen on September 10, 2021. The biographical movie helmed by Vijay, narrates the story of the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and former actress Jayalalitha. The multilingual film will be released in three languages including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
The actress took to Instagram to announce the release of the movie with a poster. “The story of this iconic personality deserves to be witnessed only on the big screen! Pave way, for #Thalaivii as she is all set to make a superstar entry into the world of cinema, yet again, a place where she has always belonged! Thalaivii IN CINEMAS near you on 10th September!”, wrote Kangana in her caption.
While Kangana plays the role of Jayalalitha, Arvind Swami will be playing the late Chief Minister M G Ramachandran. The movie also features Shamna Kasim, Nassar, Bhagyashree, Samuthirakani, Raj Arjun and Madhu Bala in pivotal roles.
The movie is written by K V Vijayendra Prasad of Baahubali fame. Vishnu Vardhan Induri, Shailesh R Singh and Brinda Prasad are on the board as producers, and the music is handled by G V Prakash Kumar.
The film had also sparked controversy in its initial stage of filming. Jayalalitha’s niece Deepa moved the Madras High Court seeking a ban on the film even though the film team had received permission for the movie from Jayalalitha's nephew. Later, the Madras High Court dismissed the case.
The film, which was officially launched on Jayalalitha’s birth anniversary, was scheduled for a theatrical release in April. But due to the pandemic induced lockdown, it was postponed. The trailer of the film was unveiled on March 23 this year, on Kangana’s 34th birthday.
