Kangana Ranaut’s first look from the biopic of late politician J Jayalalithaa has been unveiled on social media. The actress’ Instagram handle shared the first look poster of Kangana as the former Tamil Nadu chief minister in the forthcoming multilingual biopic “Thalaivi”.
The first look poster that was shared on social media on Saturday was accompanied by the caption, “The legend we know, but the story that is yet to be told! Presenting #KanganaRanaut, in & as #Thalaivi. A film by #Vijay, arriving in cinemas on 26th June 2020.”
Kangana can be seen clad in a dark green cape with a border and a bottom. She also sports a circular bindi on her forehead to look like the late CM.
Actor Arvind Swamy, best remembered for his roles in Mani Ratnam’s “Roja” and “Bombay”, will play the late Tamil superstar and former Chief Minister MG Ramachandran in the biopic “Thalaivi”.
Earlier the actress admitted that she was finding it difficult to learn the Tamil language for the film. She added that she is learning the language as per the demand of film script.
Apart from learning Tamil, Kangana enrolled herself in Bharatnatyam classes for her role. She was also reported to have spent hours on prosthetic makeup sessions.
“Thalaivi” will release in Tamil, Hindi, and Telugu. It is being directed by A L Vijay.
However, people are making fun of Kangana’s appearance and makeup in first look poster. Social media users are surprised to see her makeup, which looks quite unusual.
Such comments came on Rangoli’s post: A twitter user wrote in Hindi, “Makeup is not good. Nothing looks original. I am a big fan of Kangana. Don’t know why, but it seems people would make fun of her.” Another user commented, “Looks like Rashmi Desai of Bigg Boss.”
One user wrote, makeup and look is awful. Very disappointing, not matching the real look.” One user commented, “The most ridiculous poster ever seen.”
Another user wrote, “Did the production house forget to hire the prosthetic / makeup team?” Another user commented, “And you make fun of Taapsee (Pannu) – Bhumi (Pednekar) for makeup? What is this … Teddy Bear?”
Meanwhile, apart from Kangana, only Arvind Swami’s name has been confirmed in the cast. The film is scheduled to release on June 26, 2020.
This year, Kangana has been seen on the big screen in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi and Judgementall Hai Kya this year.
In Bollywood, she will next be seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s kabaddi film Panga and an out action film titled Dhaakad.
