As per the recent update, producers had first approached Vidya Balan for the above role in the biopic before they finalized Kangana Ranaut for the same. And this is where various speculation started bulging on.
In the recent past, we all witnessed how Kangana’s films performed marvelously well at the box office.
The actress recently managed to launch her much awaited teaser of Dhaakad which is scheduled for a release on Diwali 2020.
In the present time, the actress has transformed herself as she doesn’t mind doing serious action roles as well. Well, it looks like a new avatar of Kangana where we can see her doing films demanding roles of various characters.
At present, Kangana looks all geared up to perform in the upcoming biopic of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa.
It looks like so many other actresses were interested doing the biopic. As per the rumors, Vidya Balan was also considered for the above role before approving Kangana.
After the media personals approached the producers, they completely denied the fact that they were initially considering Vidya Balan for the Jayalalithaa biopic.
And this is what one of the producers Shaailesh R Singh clarified after going through all these rumors.
As per Shaailesh “As a producer of the film, I never approached Vidya Balan or any other actress. And I can say all this on record. At the same time, I also know that this controversy emerged sometime back. But after our writer KV Vijayendra Prasad chose to narrate the entire story of the biopic, I straightaway felt that Kangana will be the best suit for the above role. So, we both didn’t approach anyone for doing this role. However, I’m not aware in case anyone else before us had approached any other actress,” Clarified the producer Shaailesh.
He further added, “At this time, especially in the new team comprising all the producers, writer and director, we all have mutually decided that no one else except Kangana is playing the role in the biopic.”
