On the birth anniversary of J. Jayalalithaa, a new look of Kangana Ranaut as the late former Tamil Nadu chief minister in the latter’s upcoming biopic “Thalaivi” was divulged on social media by the actress’s sister Rangoli Chandel.
Kangana looks almost alike as Jayalalithaa in the picture. She wears a white saree with a red-white-black border, in sync with the flag of Jayalalithaa’s party, AIADMK. Her hair is tied, and she wears a small red bindi on the forehead with dazzling studs.
Earlier, the makers had shared the first look of Kangana as actor-turned-politician J Jayalalithaa where Kangana Ranaut looked unrecognizable in the makeup of resolute politician Jayalalithaa and is seen posing like the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
When the makers of “Thalaivi” released Kangana’s first in the film a few months ago, it carried its share of criticism, with many saying that the actress looked nothing like the Iron Lady of Tamil Nadu. However, it looks like the makers have taken notes from the criticism, because Kangana’s new look seems flawless. Said AL Vijay, director of the film: “We’ve brought in specialists from the USA to work on Kangana’s look. In terms of the story, we would like to portray her (Jayalalithaa’s) human side without trying to glorify her.”
In the new look, Kangana undoubtedly aces her look as young Thalaivi.
