Kangana Ranaut, after delivering an endearing and strong performance as Jaya in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's Panga, is all set to take us on a journey with her to learn about the life of former Tamil Nadu CM, late J Jayalalithaa through her biopic. Titled Thalaivi, the film will revolve around how a leading actress gave up her career at its peak to serve the public of Tamil Nadu as a politician. While Kangana's look as a politician and older Jayalalithaa aka Thalaivi was shared last year, the makers, today, unveiled her picture as the latter's younger self.
On the occasion of J Jayalalithaa's 72nd birthday anniversary, the makers shared a picture of Kangana where she is seen sporting the iconic white saree of the late actress turned CM. With a red bindi on her forehead and hair done into a sleek bun, the Panga actress was a mirror reflection of Thalaivi.
Thalaivi will be released in three different languages namely Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The multi-lingual film is directed by AL Vijay while the script is written by Vijayendra Prasad. Apart from Kangana, Thalaivi stars Arvind Swami, who will play the role of the actress' onscreen mentor MGR. Produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R singh for Vibri Motion Pictures in association with Karma Media & Entertainment, Thalaivi will release on June 26, 2020.
