The director of the Jayalalithaa biopic, Thalaivi, recently spoke about the upcoming film and about casting actor Kangana Ranaut in it. He said that people who are saying that she will not be able to pull off the role are passing judgement too soon. He said that there is no one better than Kangana Ranaut to play Jayalalithaa.
He specified how she had put on ten kilos for the film and how someone of her stature did not have to do that. Vijay also spoke about how the actor can slay any role, be it emotional scenes or Bharatanatyam scenes. He spoke about how working with Kangana is a delight for any director and defining her in an adjective is not possible. He also added towards the end how Kangana Ranaut is lady Aamir Khan.
