Arvind Swami is celebrating his birthday today (June 18) and wishes have been pouring in from all quarters for the ace actor's special day. Marking the occasion, the makers of Thalaivi released a new picture from the film and it has grabbed the attention of the netizens. Arvind Swami will be seen playing the role of MGR in Thalaivi and his makeover as the legendary actor is one of the best aspects of the movie. The initial posters and the trailer set high expectations on Arvind Swami's character and the movie, and this new picture has now hyped up the expectations. Thalaivi is the biopic of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalitha and Kangana Ranaut will be seen playing the titular character.

Kangana is one of the talented actors we have in the country and it is going to be interesting to see her in a character that Tamil Nadu has loved and respected. Thalaivi is directed by Vijay who is known for making movies like Deiva Thirumagal, Thalaivaa, Saivam, etc. Produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh under the banner of Vibri Media, the film has music composed by GV Prakash Kumar. The young composer is in great form and we are yet to listen to the full album of Thalaivi.

While KV Vijayendra Prasad has penned the screenplay for the film, Vishal Vittal has handled the cinematography. Apart from Kangana Ranaut and Arvind Swami, the film's star cast also includes the likes of Nassar, Bhagyashree, Samuthirakani, Madhoo, Thambi Ramaiah, Poorna, Shanmugarajan, and others. The film is fully complete and ready for release. Once the Covid 19 situation gets better in the country, Thalaivi will be releasing in theatres and it will have a pan Indian release.
