Director Venky Prasad Baboo and producer Sridevi Rao under her banner Mayabimbam Media Private Limited, is making an animation film on the late legend titled Puratchi Thalaivan.
Sridevi Rao, the producer of the film said in a press release, "It is the story of an artist who adores art in all its forms the story of a Dravidian… the story of a man who stands for justice, who takes a perfect stand against betrayers!"
On who else can the story be about, other than our great actor Puratchi Thalaivar M.G Ramachandran?
In spite of Vijay and Ajith being worshipped, the craze for Makkal Thilagam MGR still exists. It will be highlighted a step further by the film Puratchi Thalaivan.
Maduraiyai Meeta Sundara Pandiyan was the last film by MGR, and now after a long gap Puratchi Thalaivan would bring back through animation his styles and mannerisms. The present generation could see and enjoy his performance, his screen presence as well as his grace through this rare and great effort..."
The buzz is that for this animation film the producers are trying to get the permission of Trisha, Shreya or Nayantara to be paired opposite the icon. The trailer of the animation film will be premiered on January 17th , the birthday of MGR.
