Curved out of a line ‘the legend we know, but the story that is yet to be told!’, Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Thalaivi’, the biopic of former Chief Minister and legendary actress Jayalalithaa has been on the buzz right from the project’s announcement. Though the first look of Kangana as Thalaivi welcomed a divide response, there is no denying that the actress poured her heart out in portraying the character of a woman Tamil Nadu can never forget. Proving it right, the makers of the film released another look from the movie on Sunday which is now donning the social media.
It is a known fact that Jayalalithaa is a well versed classical dancer which was evident in many of her movies. To portray the same, Kangana roped in a dedicated Bharathanatyam trainer to take dance lessons when she was on holiday in Manali also. Well..! It seems to pay off. The new-look revealed Kangana in a dance pose dressed in a red saree paired with a green blouse and heavy jewellery. It was also evident that the actress put on some weight to match Jayalalithaa’s features.
Directed by Vijay and co-produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh, the film will release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on June 26, this year.
