The race to make biopics on former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is only getting bigger, with the new entrant being director Lingusamy.
With the names of drectors Vijay, Priyadarshini and Bharathiraja already doing the rounds for the biopics, the name of Lingusamy has been proposed by none other than Jeyananth Dhivakaran, nephew of TTV Dhinakaran and son of Sasikala’s brother Dhivakaran.
He said Lingusamy would make the biopic most likely and he would get inputs from senior political leaders. Jeyananth further said that the roles played by Sasikala and her husband Natarajan would be given prominence in the film.
Meanwhile, some sources claim that Nayanthara will be approached to play Jayalalithaa in the Lingusamy-directed movie, an official announcement on which is expected to be made soon.
