The title poster of the biopic on late CM J Jayalalithaa was revealed to much fanfare on social media by director AR Murugadoss. With the Sarkar director tagging Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and wishing her in a now-deleted tweet, it seemed like the actor would be playing the titular role. However, putting these speculations to rest, the director A Priyadhaarshini tells us, "It will be Nithya Menen who plays the role of the six-time Chief Minister." 

The director adds that the entire list of cast and crew will be announced soon in a grand inauguration ceremony.

Bankrolled by Papertale Pictures, The Iron Lady is directed by Priyadhaarshini, a former assistant of Mysskin.
