Kangana’s uncanny resemblance to J. Jayalalithaa in the upcoming biopic’s poster is enough to make fans and critics jaws drop in awe.

Taking to her Instagram handle, Kangna’s team shared a picture of the former CM of Tamil Nadu, donning a white saree with a broad black and red border and sporting a huge red bindi. 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.

Recreating the exact look from Jayalalithaa’s picture, the makers dropped a new poster of Thalaivi featuring Kangana. It was captioned, “Revealing Kangana’s look from the film, #Thalaivi on the occasion of 72nd Birth Anniversary of #Jayalalitha. The film is based on the story of the life of J. Jayalalithaa, and touts to shed light on the lesser known aspects of her life. (sic)”
The film is the first official biopic made on the politician and Kangana is working extremely hard to polish her skills. Directed by AL Vijay, Thalaivi is slated to hit the screens on February 20, next year. The film is being made on a grand budget and trails Amma’s life from the age of 16 to her filmy career, her political rise, illness and death. The first look of Kangana as the former CM of Tamil Nadu was recently released to mixed reviews. A section of the audience found her look too-gimmicky-for-biopic and criticised the team for making Kangana look extremely funny. However, some others appreciated the actor for her hard work and patience with the prosthetics.
