Actress Kangana Ranaut has been staying in her hometown Manali since the beginning of the lockdown and spending time with her family. But now, as the lockdown has lifted and everybody has started going back to work, the actress has also bid adieu to the Himalayas. Kangana on Thursday shared that she has left for Hyderabad to begin the next shooting schedule of her upcoming film Thalaivi. Sharing pictures, the actress thanked the Himalayas for keeping her in its embrace during the testing times.
Kangana Ranaut tweeted, "It’s never easy to say bye but time to say bye to my mountains, leaving for the last schedule of Thalaivi to Hyderabad, post that cos of back to back filming commitments might not be back in Manali anytime soon but thank you Himalayas for giving me shelter in testing times"
In October, Kangana had resumed the shoot of the Jayalalithaa biopic after seven long months. Taking to Twitter, Kangana Ranaut had shared the news with her fans along with some beautiful morning selfies. She had tweeted, "Dear friends today is a very special day, resuming work after 7 months, travelling to southern India for my most ambitious bilingual project THALAIVI, need your blessings in these testing times of a pandemic. P.S just clicked these morning selfies hope you all like them."
For Thalaivi, Kangana Ranaut had gained 20 Kgs and learned Bharatnatyam to step into the shoes of the great actress and leader. Recently, the actress shared that gaining weight for the role and doing Bharatnatyam left her back severely damaged, adding that she is struggling to lose the extra kilos. "I played the first super humangirl on Indian screen, thanks to my body a rare combination of dainty yet strong looking, in my 30's I had to gain 20 kgs for 'Thalaivi' and do Bharatnatyam, it left my back severely damaged but no bigger gratification than to play a role to perfection," Kangana tweeted along with a series of photographs showing her transformation.
"Journey back to my fit body wasn't easy, I feel good but even in seven months not able to achieve my earlier stamina and agility back and those last 5 kgs arnt budging, there are moments of despair and then my director Vijay sir shows me 'Thalaivi' footage and all seems fine," she added.
Thalaivi is an upcoming bilingual biopic of late Jayalalithaa. The film will trace the journey of the late leader from silver screen to politics. It is directed by AL Vijay, and also stars Arvind Swami, Prakash Raj, Madhoo and Bhagyashree.
