Jaya’s kin slams Gautham Menon

With director Gautham Vasudev Menon making a web series titled Queen, which is said to be based on the life of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, the late leader’s nephew Deepak Jayakumar has come down heavily on the filmmaker.

“I came to know from few media that director Gautham Vasudev Menon is planning to make a web-series about a political icon titled ‘Queen’ and Ramya Krishnan is playing the lead role,” he said in a statement.

Deepak further said, “Director Vijay has met me and has narrated me about his project ‘Thalaivi’ which is a biopic of my aunty Late. Ms.J.Jayalalitha.

He has also availed permission from me and has taken a No-objection certificate to start the project.  He has assured to portray the real facts in the movie without defaming my aunty in anyways.”

He added: “In this situation, director Gautham Vasudev Menon has announced about his new web-series project about a political icon.  I am not sure about the political icon whom Gautham Vasudev Menon is mentioning about.

I would wish to clear the media that, if any movie or web-series is being pictured about my aunty Late Ms.J.Jayalaitha without our families permission would be dealt very serious. Hope Gautham Vasudev menon clears who the Queen he is meaning about.”

Recently, reports said shoot for the series was wrapped up and it will be aired soon on MX Player.  It is said the film would explore some untold details about Jayalalithaa.
