Kangana Ranaut‘s special ode to the legendary politician, Jayalalithaa on her birth anniversary is sure to make you wonder about the similarities between the two women.

Ever since its announcement, ‘Thalaivi’,  starring Kangana Ranaut as Jayalalithaa has created a huge buzz. The makers have been releasing Kangana’s and MGR’s look from set to keep up the anticipation of the film amongst the audiences. Now, we have another look.

To mark the birth anniversary of Jayalalithaa, the makers of the film have now released a new look of Kangana as ‘Thalaivi’, and she looks like a spitting image of the revered politician. Clad in a white saree with a black and white border, the look is of Jayalalithaa in her 30s when she was about to enter politics. Not only the outfit and overall look, but even Kangana’s facial expressions do complete justice to that of Jayalalithaa.

As soon as the image dropped online, internet erupted in praise of Kangana nailing the look of the late superstar turned politician. Speaking of playing an icon like Jayalalithaa, Kangana said, “After Manikarnika, this is my second biopic, and I am honored to portray such a strong lady. Her personality was very different from anything I have portrayed earlier. It’s very gratifying to play someone who was so determined, persevered but had a silent strength which distinguished her from everyone else.

AL Vijay, who is helming the multi-lingual (Hindi, Tamil & Telugu) film said, “The film depicts the early years and struggles she faced both as an actor and as a politician.

The film will be an unvarnished depiction of late Jayalalitha’s life. He added, “Her life was a mix of glamour, love, heartbreak, struggle, and success. Our focus is to make it as real as possible, without trying to glorify her, but show the human side of the person she was.

The director also said that the leading lady Kangana has brought a fierce quality to her muse who was a firebrand. “Kangana’s dedication towards playing the character shows in the fact that she gained weight to stay true to the stage of her life that she is portraying. Her attention to details, her makeup and costumes will make it a visual treat for the audience, they will feel like they are watching Jayalalitha herself on screen.

The recent look of Kangana Ranaut performing Bharatnatyam went viral on the internet. To get into the character, Kangana took Bharatnatyam and Tamil lessons and has also gained a substantial amount of weight to match the looks. Based on the story of the legendary actor turned politician, the trilingual film is being directed by Vijay and also stars Arvind Swamy. Produced by Vishnu Vardhan Iduri and Shaailesh R Singh, ‘Thalaivi’ is scheduled to release on June 26.
