Kangana Ranaut was last seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga. And now she is all set to enthral the audience with her upcoming film Thalaivi. Helmed by Vijay, Thalaivi is based on the life of J. Jayalalithaa, a politician and film actress who served six terms as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. This is the first time when Kangana is starring in a biopic.

Today on the occasion of Kangana’s 34th birthday, the makers of Thalaivi have unveiled its first trailer. And as expected Kangana stands out in the trailer of Thalaivi as it chronicles the journey of Jayalalithaa from being a superstar to ruling Tamil Nadu for six terms.

In the trailer of Thalaivi, Kangana starts out as an actress who left everyone mesmerised with her beauty and sensuality. And when she sets her mind to something she gets it done, be it her stardom or constructing her political career from scratch. The film will also throw light on Jayalalithaa’s relationship with M. G. Ramachandran (played by Arvind Swamy).

From being the Queen of romance to becoming the legendary rebel icon, J. Jayalalithaa’s life is a fascinating story and Thalaivi aims to showcase the unknown facets of her life to the audience. While Kangana’s transformation is amazing however there this one scene in the trailer when her makeup appears to be thrust. And it feels as if she is having difficulty in delivering her dialogues given the prosthetic makeup.

Also starring Prakash Raj, Jissu Sengupta, Nassar, Bhagyashree, Raj Arjun, Madhu Bala, the biopic is scheduled to release on April 23.
