She not only ruled the hearts of cinephiles for decades but has unprecedentedly reigned the state for fourteen long years. Actor-turned-politician Jayalalithaa’s life stood as inspiration for aspirants in both political and film fraternities. With a series of biopics rolling in, the Indian cinema which is basking in the glory of ‘Mahanati’ is now all set for a bio of yet another legendary actress Jayalalithaa. Setting aside the efforts of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s niece Deepa to restrain the biopics on her aunt, team ’Thalaivi’ has recently hit the sets under the directorship of AL Vijay.
Meanwhile, the team has released the first look poster of Kangana as in the shoes of Jayalalithaa on Saturday. The poster revealed Kangana in prosthetic look wearing the legendary leader’s signature costume which has been receiving a heart-whelming response from the cinephiles. However, seems like the poster didn’t please a section of netizens who took to social media to troll the look. While a few of the netizens who recognised the hardship behind Hollywood make-up artist and prosthetic expert Jason Collins tweeted about anticipating yet another National Award for Kangana, a section of people came up with memes and trolls which made the first look trending in hours. Several others had commented that Kangana’s face looked like Minister Smriti Irani.
I can't see #Thalaivi bcoz a lady who was God for TN poors is being played by a lady who is arrogant in real life & spreading cheap comments to others by her sister.?
