Kangana Ranaut is on a high in her career, with many films in her kitty. The actress was recently roped in for Jayalalithaa’s biopic and this film will mark her debut in the South industry. Director Vijay answers why he chose Kangana even though she wasn’t the first choice. Read on to know what he said.

Jayalalithaa’s biopic has been making headlines since the day Kangana was cast as the lead in the film. The film is titled Thalaivi in Tamil and Jaya in Hindi; it will be a bilingual project. While talking about specifically casting Kangana, director Vijay said, “There was a lot of discussion before the decision was made to cast Kangana; we met several people as well. She is extremely excited about the project and wants to portray her with utmost honesty. She will learn Tamil for the film and be part of a one-month workshop to get into the character. We are all trying to make an honest biopic. That’s all I can say at this point of time.”

Seems like the actress wasn’t the only choice. Recently in an interview with a portal, actress Vidya Balan had revealed that she was approached for the part. Anyway, now that Kangana is on board, Vijay is happy and said, “You can’t restrict Jayalalithaa to one region, she was a national leader. Even in Mumbai, people know who Amma is. Kangana (Ranaut) is one of the biggest stars in India today. I think it is right that a top star plays the role of an important politician. This way, the story will also reach audiences across India. We consider this a pan-India film, not a regional one.”

Kangana has already begun working on the project. She has started taking Bharatanatyam classes and is also learning the Tamil language. Alongside Jaya, she has Mental Hai Kya and Panga in her kitty as well. For more updates and gossip from Bollywood, stay tuned to CineBlitz.
