AIADMK leader points out 'some factual errors' in Kangana starrer Jayalalithaa's biopic

He turned nostalgic after watching the movie

Kangana Ranaut starrer, "Thalaivii", touted as a biopic of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, has some "factual errors", AIADMK leader and former minister D. Jayakumar said on Friday.


Talking to media persons after watching the movie, Jayakumar said that the movie is a well crafted one, except for a few scenes on former CM and AIADMK founder-leader, late MG Ramachandran, fondly known as MGR, as also on Jayalalithaa.


Citing a scene wherein MGR wanted to become a minister in the first DMK government led by CN Annadurai and that it was later Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi who blocked him, Jayakumar said that MGR had never sought positions.


He said that Annadurai wanted MGR to be made a minister but he himself refused and was subsequently made deputy Chief of the Small Savings Department, which was a new post.


The senior AIADMK leader said that if these scenes are removed from the movie, it would turn out into a super success, adding that he turned nostalgic on watching the movie.
