Earlier, Rangoli shared a glimpse of Kangana as Thalaivi where the actor channelled the same look like the late minister. The national award-winning actor was seen in her Amma avatar, sans prosthetics. Dressed in a plain white saree with black and red border with her hair pulled back in a mid-parted low bun, Jayalalithaa smiled away from the camera. Kangana’s team captioned the picture, “Remembering the super-lady, J. #Jayalalitha on her 72nd Birth Anniversary. Her life’s story speaks volumes about the stout-heartedness and the leadership qualities she possessed. Kangana and everyone who loves her and follows her teachings, denotes her as Jaya Amma. (sic)”
Thalaivi has been co-written by Baahubali and Manikarnika writer KV Vijayendra Prasad and The Dirty Picture and Once Upon a Time in Mumbai writer Rajat Arora. The movie is set to hit theatres on June 26, 2020.
