In January, another look from the film was revealed on social media.
Speaking of her transformation into Jayalalithaa, Kangana had told mid-day, in an interview last year that she had to take "hormone pills." Kanagana told mid-day, "Since I am tall and skinny, and my face is angular, not round, I had to take mild doses of hormone pills to look different. Of course, I also started eating foods that promote weight gain."
Arvind Swami plays Maruthur Gopala Ramachandran (MGR) in Thalaivi. Directed by Vijay and co-produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh, the film will release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on June 26, this year.
On the professional front, Kangana Ranaut was last seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's sports drama Panga, co-starring Richa Chadha, Neena Gupta and Jassie Gill. The actress also has Sarvesh Mewara's Tejas in the pipeline, in which she will play an Air Force pilot.
