Kangana Ranaut is going under extreme prep mode as she gears up to kickstart the shooting schedule of Jayalalithaa's biopic. The film is titled Thalaivi. After seeing some beautiful photographs of the actress learning the classical Bharatnatyam dance form, she is now performing a puja. On the occasion of Vijayadashami (Dussehra) on October 8, Kangana Ranaut performed Nataraja pooja with her Bharatnatyam Guru and renowned choreographer, Gayathri Raguram.

The latter also bestowed her with ceremonial Ghungroos for a fruitful dancing journey ahead.

The producer of the film, Vishnu Vardhan Induri, had earlier revealed that renowned Hollywood artist, Jason Collins, who has worked on films like 'Blade Runner' and 'Captain Marvel', will be working on Kangana's look in the biopic. The film will go on floors post-Diwali near Mysore and is being helmed by AL Vijay and produced by Induri and Shaailesh R Singh.

It is written by 'Baahubali' and 'The Dirty Picture' writers K.V. Vijayendra Prasad and Rajat Arora, respectively. The biopic will be titled 'Thalaivi' in Tamil and Telegu while it will be called 'Jaya' in Hindi. Jayalalithaa served as the chief minister of Tamil Nadu for over 14 years and was an actor before entering politics. The AIADMK leader left countless supporters bereaved when she died in 2016 at the age of 68.

The film was earlier titled Thalaivi in Tamil and Telugu and Jaya in Hindi, but Kangana insisted that due respect must be given to an ancient Indian language like Tamil, and the title Thalaivi should be retained across all three versions. The film is being directed by AL Vijay and produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh.
