Actress Kangana Ranaut who is prepping up for her lead role in Thalaivi, a biopic on J Jayalalithaa, late chief minister of Tamil Nadu, she is finding it quite difficult to learn the Tamil language and hence, has decided to mug up her dialogues for the movie.
The Queen actress while speaking to the reporters on Wednesday said, "Vanakam - did you understand that? Actually, I am finding it very difficult to learn Tamil. The film is being made in Tamil as well as in Hindi, so we will do something about it. Obviously, I have to mug up the dialogues because Tamil is not an easy language.” Earlier, I was thinking of learning Tamil completely as I have learned English also. But now I will only learn as per the demand of the script," she said. AL Vijay is directing the movie. Last month the actress was working hard to play the stalwart and was taking Bharatnatyam classes for the role.
In the video, Kangana apes Jayalalithaa’s dance movies as seen in the 1965 film ‘Vennira Aadai’. Later, the video cuts through to her waving the victory sign to all her supporters as she addresses a rally.
Kangana’s impressive look is doing by renowned Hollywood prosthetics artist, Jason Collins, who has worked on films like 'Blade Runner' and 'Captain Marvel'.
