Jayalalitha's Biopic Takes Backseat?

Jayalalitha's Biopic Takes Backseat?

Kangana Ranaut's biopic on Tamil Nadu's former chief minister, the late Jayalalithaa, seems to have hit a roadblock and the makers have postponed it for now.

Just a few days back, Ranaut’s ‘Thalaivi’ was in the news after powerhouse Tamil filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon announced a web series based on Jayalalithaa, and called it ‘Queen’, taking his competition with Ranaut head on.

But that might not be the only reason, as we hear that Ranaut’s project has not been able to raise the required funds.

It was said to be made at a budget of Rs 55 crore and in three languages – Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Ranaut herself was rumoured to get paid Rs 20 crore.

But it seems the film will have to wait for a while before the cameras roll.
