It is confirmed that actress Kangana Ranaut will be seen playing the title role of late Jayalalithaa in her biopic under the direction of AL Vijay. The film is tipped to be a bilingual drama in both Kollywood and Bollywood.
Now, if reports are to be believed, Kangana is said to have quoted a sum of Rs 24 crore for the project and the makers have agreed.
A source said, “Kangana is being paid Rs 24 crore for the bilingual project. The makers seem certain that her star power will help the movie reach a pan-Indian audience, and the producers have already signed a contract with her.”
Source added, “This is the first time that a Hindi actress has been roped in to play the lead role in a South Indian film. A noteworthy development indeed. If this works, then it could completely blur the lines between Bollywood and regional cinema.”
On the other hand, few other reports refuted the same and said she’s been offered Rs 12 crore.
However, there is no official confirmation on the same.
