Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming Jayalalithaa Biopic titled Thalaivi has been in news for a long time now. And now the upcoming film has landed in trouble after late politician and actress’ niece has shown objection against its making. This is not it, as the lady named Deepa Jayakumar has also opposed the making of the web series on her life.
According to Times Now report, Deepa has moved to the Madras High Court and has appealed that neither the upcoming film nor the web series makers have got the due permissions from her. The biopic starring Kangana is to be directed by AL Vijay & web series is being made by Gautham Menon.
However, Deepa doesn’t want to stop the making of film and web series and just wants to ensure that the script is honest. Reportedly, Deepa is just seeking some form of guarantee from both filmmakers and wants the court to take care that the scripts don’t misinterpret Jayalalithaa’s biopic.
Earlier Jayalalithaa’s nephew Deepak Jayakumar expressed his displeasure regarding the making of the web series titled Queen. He issued a statement, claiming Gautham did not take approval from Jayalaithaa’s family before filming the series on her.
Jayakumar also shared that director of Thalaivi, A. L. Vijay has received a No Objection Certificate from him and is officially recognised as her authorised biography.
In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, Jayakumar said: “Amma (Jayalalithaa) is a political personality and her public life is known history. I have no objection if he (Menon) has portrayed her political life. However, no one has any right to portray her private life without taking proper consent from me and my sister Deepa.”
