Is it Amma? Or is it an animation image of Amma?
In a nutshell, Kangana Ranaut looks anything but Jayalalithaa in the first look that was unveiled on Saturday. The National award winning actor is playing the former Tamil Nadu chief minister in a biopic titled `Thalaivi’ and has make-up artists from Hollywood to help her look the part. But if the first images are anything to go by, it has not been a convincing job. The teaser has left many Jayalalithaa admirers aghast. Watch below.
There was another project launched on Jayalalithaa with Nithya Menen playing the part. Who do you think, looks more like the former AIADMK supremo?
Thalaivi, meanwhile, is being produced simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. There are unconfirmed reports that Prakash Raj would play Karunanidhi. This would be the second time he would be doing so, having played a Karunanidhi-inspired character in Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar in the 1990s. The movie is slated for a June 2020 release.
