Kangana Ranaut has wrapped yet another schedule of Thalaivi. The biopic of politician J Jayalalithaa sees the actress tell the story of the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister on the big screen. The filming came to a halt in March following the outbreak of COVID-19 in India. Like several Bollywood movie filmings, Thalaivi also resumed filming recently and now, Kangana has confirmed the team has wrapped their ongoing schedule. She took to Instagram and shared photos from the sets of the movie. 

In the photos, Kangana sports the trademark saree, sported by Jayalalithaa in a political meeting. The actress appeared to be shooting an assembly seen. The first picture revoked the memories of Jayalalithaa from the 90s. The second picture sees the actress sporting a mask. The third image was of Jayalalithaa from her younger days. 

Kangana shared the images and wrote, "With the blessings of Jaya Ma we completed one more schedule of Thalaivi- the revolutionary leader. After corona many things are different but between action and before cut nothing changes. Thank you team." 

Check out the photos below: 

Speaking with The Hindu in the past, Kangana opened up about playing the iconic politician on the big screen. She said that she finds a few similarities with Jayalalithaa. "She was a very reluctant actor. It is the same with me. I never wanted to be an actor, and that is why we became very unusual actors. I think she always felt that she was worth much more than just being a glam doll [in films], and she became a politician. Like how I became a filmmaker because I felt that being an actress was very limiting for me. So, I think there are parallels."

Ssr fans think she fought for him .... She did not ... Ssr lawyer nikassi gh himself said that she is fighting for her own means ..... She has her own problems which she is portraying by just speaking for ssr .. And that too she proved it wrong .... I'm not saying nepotism does not exist ... But it did not kill ssr... He would take 8 crores perfilm..... So he did not suffer any financial issue.... He had opened few business or something .. but it is clearly that money was not the reason..... And he was avoided I think at starting ... When he debuted his film...... Or else his movies were appreciated by the audience .... Idk about the parties which he did not come.... I think he did not like to party or was not a party person.... Because back days when he was in a good state... I mean with kriti or Ankita ... He was not sported in party .... He did have to do struggle ... But for tv he did., Once he was famous he did his first film ...... So I want to say that kangana who gave som mych lame reason that karam johar or someone's defamed him.... She herself have some grudges against him..... Why she did not speak when Jiak Khan passed away.... Because she was not famous.... That's it

I support Kangana. Once I hated her but I have realized whatever she said about the gutter Bollywood was all true. Bullywood has drug addicts. Recently SSR was caught having drugs while DP was blamed.

Flop actress.. She has very few hits to her name.. Less than a handful.. Really don't feel like seeing her on screen

Anonymous 2 months ago

Please Kangana started that I’m the only actress who don’t work with A list actors crap because the A list actors never wanted to work with her. Remember she worked with names like Emraam Hashmi when he used to be the kids king, Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor and John Abraham and Anil Kapoor to name a few majority of these actors are big names. So if she use this logic then Sonam Kapoor should be able to use the same logic as her cuz the almost do have the same ratio on hits to flops.

I understand why you think Jayalalitha was filthy, probably because of the illicit affair With MGR.
