The makers of ‘Thalaivi’, a biopic of Tamilnadu’s former chief minister and actress J Jayalalithaa, first approached NTR Jr to essay the position of his grandfather NT Rama Rao. However NTR declined to do the character.
Jayalalithaa had acted reverse NT Rama Rao in a few movies. Plus, NTR had an in depth friendship with MGR, Jayalalithaa’s political guru and companion.

It stays to be seen who would essay this position. ‘Thalaivi’ has Kangana Ranaut taking part in the position of Jayalalithaa and is directed by Vijay.
