The creators of Thalaivi revealed new images of Arvind Swami as the former chief minister of Tamil Nadu, MG Ramachandran, on the anniversary of the actor-turned-politician’s death on Thursday. MG Ramachandran, affectionately called MGR, was the Prime Minister of Tamil Nadu for ten consecutive years (1977-1987). He died on December 24, 1987. In loving memory of the late prime minister, Arvind Swami shared new posters of himself as MGR and wrote: “It was not just an honor to play the role of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR, but a big thank you to the director. AL Vijay and producers Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh for having faith in me. I humbly post these photos in Thalaivar’s memory today. #Thalaivi #MGR #ArvindSwamiasMGR “.
Thalaivi, Directed by AL Vijay, it is based on the life story of former Prime Minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa and Kangana Ranaut plays the main role in it. MGR was a very important person in Jayalalithaa’s life and career, but we’ll talk about that later.
First, check out the photos of Arvind Swami dressed as MG Ramachandran:

MG Ramachandran was as a mentor to J Jayalalithaa. After resigning from the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) political party in 1972, he formed All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) and rose to power again in 1977. He remained the Prime Minister of Tamil Nadu until his death in December 1987.
