Kangana Ranaut gave a special congratulations to the great politician Jayalalithaa on her birth anniversary, which will make you wonder about the equality between the two women.
Since her announcement, starring Kangana Ranaut as Jayalalithaa, ‘Thalaivi’ has created a huge buzz. The makers released Kangana and MGR’s look from the set to maintain the film’s anticipation among the audience. Now, we have another look.
To mark Jayalalithaa’s birth anniversary, the film’s makers have now released Kangana’s new look ‘Thalaivi’, and she looks like a spitting image of the revered politician. Dressed in a black and white border white saree, Nazar is in her 30s when she was about to enter politics. Not only the dress and overall look, but also Kangana’s facial expressions do full justice to Jayalalithaa.
As the image fell online, the internet rang in praise of Kangana, changing from a late superstar to a politician. Talking about icons like Jayalalithaa, Kangana said, “This is my second biopic, after Manikarnika, and I am honored to portray such a strong woman. His personality was very different from anything I’ve portrayed before. It was very difficult to play the role of someone who was firm, but had a silent force that set him apart from everyone else.“
Al-Vijay, who is shooting for the multi-lingual (Hindi, Tamil and Telugu) film, said, “The film depicts early years and has faced struggles both as an actor and as a politician.“
The film will be a unique depiction of late Jayalalithaa’s life. He added, “His life was a mixture of glamor, love, heartbreak, struggle and success. Our focus is to make him as real as possible, without glorifying him, but will show the human side of the person he was.“
The director also said that Kangana, the leading lady, has brought a fierce quality to her collection which was a firebrand. “Kangana’s dedication to playing the character reflects the fact that she gained weight to complete the phase of her life that she is portraying. Her attention to details, her makeup and costumes will make it a visual treat for the audience, making her feel as if she is seeing Jayalalithaa herself on screen.“
Recently, while doing Bharatanatyam of Kangana Ranaut, the look went viral on the internet. To get into the character, Kangana took Bharatanatyam and Tamil lessons and also gained sufficient amount of weight to match the look. Based on the story of veteran actor to politician, the trilingual film is being directed by Vijay and also stars Arvind Swamy. Produced by Vishnu Vardhan Iduri and Shailesh R Singh, ‘Thalaivi’ is set to release on 26 June.
