When the biopic on celebrated actress and a beloved politician Jayalalithaa was announced, people had super high hopes from Kangana Ranaut being roped in to play the lead.
Bollywood's 'Queen' can do justice to any role you give her and hence, when the teaser released last night, everyone was pretty much excited.
One shouldn't judge a book by its cover, right? However, one minute and 32 seconds of sneak peek at Thalaivi had the fans convinced that the whole garb is not as realistic as they expected.
Kangana's look has now become the center of all memes and jokes on the internet.November 23, 2019
In the genre of biopics, some films have left a tremendous mark on the viewers such as Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and the likes. But critics feel that some biopics make a caricature out of a person, instead of celebrating them.
First Shri Narendra ji modi biopic was destroyed by the cheap tacky makeup, now iconic #Jayalalitha ji biopic would see the same fate. Feeling bad for such iconic leaders.. #Thalaivi pic.twitter.com/ojxh7XTjf2— Sumit kadel (@SumitkadeI) November 23, 2019
Meanwhile, some people feel that the makers should have roped in Kamal Haasan for this role.November 23, 2019
However, let's not discount it just yet. Some of us have full faith in the power of Kangana's acting skills.
