EPS, OPS at inauguration of biopic on MGR

Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami today launched the shooting of a biopic on former Chief Minister and actor M G Ramachandran, on the occasion of his centenary year at the MGR Film city in Taramani. The event was presided over by Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.

Director A Balakrishnan, who made a biopic on Kamaraj, will now helm a biopic on MGR. Speaking to the press on the sidelines of the event, Balakrishnan said, 'Like Kamarajar, MGR is also a much-admired leader, and I have been meaning to make a film on his life. Interestingly, I had also begun Kamaraj during the centenary year of the leader (2003), and released it the following year.

"He reveals that he has selected two actors to play the role of MGR, but refuses to divulge the names at this point.I have decided to have two actors play the role. One of them will appear in the portions involving MGR's stint in theatre while the other will be seen in the portions where he becomes a hero and then a politician, he said.
