It's a known fact that South lass Ragini Dwivedi is essaying ace actress turned politician Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa's role in forthcoming film Amma, which is being directed by Faisal Saif.

Amma is all set to go on-floors on the occasion of Ragini Dwivedi's birthday, May 24 2014. Speaking to Bangalore Mirror, director Faisal has denied that Amma is based on Jayalalithaa's life.
