In an interview with national daily, Priyadarshini explained why he picked Nithya to play the late Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa.

“Being a ‘star’ actress alone is not a qualification for playing Jaya madam on screen. I wanted an actress who would give a nuanced performance, besides her physique and height matching Amma’s. I felt Nithya Menen would fit the bill. I went to Bengaluru and narrated the script to her and she was too happy to come on board,” Priyadarshini said.

The latest buzz suggest that Nithya Menen is quite dedicated for the project and she will not sign any new films till she completes the film.
