During the launch the actress spoe about the difference between working in Bollywood movies and filming movies in the South. “In the South, there is nepotism, but there is no groupism and newcomers are not cut off.” The actress further complimented how work is conducted in the South film industry by saying there’s hard work and talent, “No one b***hes about anyone. There are no blind items. Just pure work and talent.” said Kangana
She stressed about the fact that newcomers are given more chance and are not isolated in the south film industry. This is not the first time the actor has been vocal about nepotism in film industry.
Kangana Ranaut battle with Nepotism and Karan Johar was going on for a very long time last year. The actor even got into a rig with Taapsee pannu on the same lines last year. In a interview actress Kangana lashed out on Taapsee for supporting the oppressors of the industry. “I only have to lose here, because tomorrow they (referring to the ‘movie mafia’) will get some 20 needy outsiders like Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhaskar who will say ‘oh only Kangana has a problem with Karan Johar, but we love Karan Johar.’ If you love Karan Johar, why are you both B Grade actresses? You are better looking than Alia Bhatt and Ananya, you both are better actresses, why don’t you get work? Your existence is a proof of nepotism. What are you telling me how happy you are with this industry?” Kangana said during the interview with Arnab Goswami recently. Click here Read more
Now while announcing the trailer’s release on her social media, the star wrote on Twitter, “One day to go for the trailer launch of #Thalaivi Gaining 20 kgs and losing it all back within a span of few months wasn’t the only challenge that I faced while filming this Epic Biopic, the wait is getting over just in few hours Jaya will be your forever.”
Although there were debates about how a South Indian actress could have sported the role of the Ironlady of Tamil Nadu, Kangana seems to have taken a real effort to live the role of the fondly known Jaya Amma. Arvind Swami’s look as MGR seems to be the highlight of the film too where he manages to talk, walk and in fact even look almost like his doppleganger.
Carried out by A.L. Vijay, who is in charge of this multilingual project, says, “The film depicts the early years and struggles she faced both as an actor and as a politician. The film will be an unvarnished depiction of Late Jayalalitha’s life. The late CM’s life was a mix of glamour, love, heartbreak, struggle, and success. Our focus is to make it as real as possible, without trying to glorify her, but show the human side of the person she was. Kangana’s dedication towards playing the character shows in the fact that she gained weight to stay true to the stage of her life that she is portraying. Her attention to detail, her makeup and costumes will make it a visual treat for the audience. They will feel like they are watching Jayalalitha herself on screen.”
