We had previously reported that a few biopics on the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is in works. Director Vijay is helming Thalaivi starring Kangana Ranaut in the lead. Another one, titled Iron Lady, is directed by Priyadarshini, a former associate of Mysskin. A web-series, starring Ramya Krishnan as the yesteryear actor-turned-minister, directed by Gautham Menon, has also been recently completed. It's now known that director Kethireddy Jagadishwara Reddy, who is awaiting the release of yet another NTR biopic titled Lakshmi's Veeragrandham, has announced a Jayalalithaa biopic titled Sasilalitha. 

Speaking about the film, K Jagadishwara Reddy, who is also producing the project, says, "The film will be a honest interpretation of Jayalalithaa's life, right from her childhood, to her entry to Tamil cinema and politics, till her death. Jayalalithaa faced a lot of obstacles in her life and the film will mirror all the that, including the 75 days she spent in the hospital. The film will also dwell upon unknown details regarding her close aide, Sasikala".

Sasilalitha, for which the director is in talks with stars to play the roles of Jayalalithaa and Sasikala, will go on floors from the first week of May and will release simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi.
