It has been two years since former chief minister J Jayalalithaa passed away and the mystery surrounding her death is still not solved. After her demise, several filmmakers came forward to direct a biopic based on her life.

On September 20, the title of the film was revealed by filmmaker AR Murugadoss of Sarkar fame.

On her second death anniversary, which is today (December 5), the makers have announced that Nithya Menen will be reprising J Jayalalithaa in the film.

Further, it is speculated that Varalaxmi Sarathkumar might be seen as Sasikala (J Jayalalithaa's companion).
