Previously on the 103rd birth anniversary of MGR, the makers of ‘Thalaivi’ had released the first look of Arvind Swami as MGR. With this biopic, Arvind Swami is all set to make a comeback in Bollywood. Talking about Arvind Swami’s look as MGR, creative producer Brinda Prasad shared, “MGR has been one of the most widely respected and loved figure amongst the people of Tamil Nadu. We as the makers had to be extremely cautions about the presentation of a personality who is so great in stature. We have made a conscious effort to not just ace the look but also emulate the characteristics of the legendary hero and Arvind Swami has been the apt choice for the role.”
Produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh; Co-produced by Hitesh Thakkar along with Thirumal Reddy, Thalaivi is a Vibri Motion Pictures and Karma Media and Entertainment Presentation. The film is directed by Vijay.
