After releasing the teaser of the song on Friday, the makers of Thalaivii starring Kangana Ranaut and Arvind Swami, released the first romantic song, Teri Aankhon Mein, from the film on Monday. The two minutes long song traces the on-screen chemistry between Jayalalithaa and MGR played by Kangana and Arvin respectively. The song also offers a glimpse into the golden years of South Indian Cinema in the 60s and 70s.
Teri Aankhon Mein' pays a tribute to the innumerable blockbusters of the legendary South Indian superstars, by recreating four iconic original songs featuring the duo- Kannae Kaniyae and Enna Porutham from Rasiya Police 115 (1968), Ninathathai Nadathiyae from Nam Naadu (1969), Ninathen Vanthai from Kaavalkaaran (1967). It is Sung by Armaan Malik and Prajakta Shukre, and is composed by G V Prakash Kumar and penned by Irshaad Kamil.
Thalaivii is a biographical film about the life of late J. Jayalalithaa. During an interview with a daily director, Al Vijay said, "The film will focus on the journey of a woman who has been successful in a male-dominated world. The most beautiful thing about her is that she has a powerful mind and is very strong-willed; she is an inspiration for many. There will be honesty in the biopic, not drama."
Directed by AL Vijay, Thalaivii was supposed to release on 23 April 2021. However, due to COVID 19 second wave, the release was postponed. Now, as the theatres have reopened in several states, the film is all set to release on 10 September in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The film also stars Madhoo Shah, Bhagyashree, Prakash Raj, and others besides Kangana and Arvind Swami.
The film is presented by Vibri Motion pictures, Karma Media Entertainment, and Zee Studios in association with Gothic Entertainment and Sprint films.
