A new and younger look of Kangana Ranaut as Jayalalithaa for Thalaivi has been released by the makers today to mark the birth anniversary of Jayalalithaa, where the Queen actress looks like a mirror image of the revered politician. Clad in a white saree with black and white border, the look is of Jayalalithaa in her 30s when she was about to enter politics. Not only the outfit and overall look, but even Kangana’s facial expressions do complete justice to those of Jayalalithaa. As soon as the image dropped online, internet erupted in praise of Kangana nailing the look of the late superstar turned politician.
Sharing a picture, the Twitter handle of Kangana Ranaut's team wrote, "On #Thalaivi 's birth anniversary, here's another glimpse of #KanganaRanaut looking like a mirror image of #Jayalalitha".
Twitter is in awe of Kangana Ranaut's new Thalaivi look as Jayalalithaa. Several social media users said that the transformation is simply stunning and can't wait for the film to release in the cinemas.
