The late TN Former CM Jayalalitha’s biopic was directed by Director Vijay. Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has played the role of Jayalalitha.
Actress Kangana Ranaut is adamant that her upcoming big budget film Thalaivi will not get direct to the digital release, but she confirms that Netflix and Amazon have bought streaming right for the film for Rs 55 crore.
While addressing the media Kangana said, “It depends. For example, a film like Thalaivi just can’t release on digital because it is such a massive scale film, neither a movie like Manikarnika is a digital space film. But yes, films like Panga, Judgemental Hai Kya also cater to that audience. The way the film is made, it is very digital-friendly. They have recovered huge costs through digital itself. So, it depends.”
It’s notable that Kangana has recently donated Rs 5 lakh to the Film Employees Federation of South India’s (FEFSI UNION) relief fund and has also contributed Rs 5 lakh for the daily wage workers on Thalaivi.
Kangana’s sister and manager Rangoli Chandel also spoke and she said that Kangana had put on 20 kilos for the biographical drama.
“In TWM Kangana had a bike accident and got 52 stitches in her foot, in Manikarnika her actor accidentally hit her head with a heavy metal sword she got 15 stitches on her forehead, now she has gained a lot of weight put her health at stake. We salute all the artists who transcend their human limitations only to reach out to us,” Rangoli tweeted about her sister.
