Watch: Kangana gets teary-eyed during ‘Thalaivi’ trailer launch; says ‘I cried and it feels so good’

On the occasion of Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut's 34th birthday, the first trailer of her upcoming film 'Thalaivi' was unveiled.

The biopic is based on the life of late politician J Jayalalitha, who changed the face of politics in Tamil Nadu.

Kangana seems to have left no stone unturned in getting under the skin of her character and looked gorgeous as the late actor and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.

However, the actress who calls herself “Babbar Sherni” got teary-eyed at the trailer launch.

While addressing her rapport with the film’s director A. L. Vijay, Kangana said, “Never in my life have a met a man who has not made me feel apologetic about my talent.”

Ranaut quote-tweeted the clip that showed her getting emotion and wrote, “I call myself Babbar Sherni cause I never cry I never give anyone the privilege of making me cry, don’t remember when I cried last but today I cried and cried and cried and it feels so good.”

The nearly three-and-a-half-minute-long trailer opened with a voice-over that said "Jaya", and then graphics are shown that read, "The name you know, the life story you don't".

After that, a man can be heard saying, "Woh film vali hume bataegi ke rajneeti kaise ki jati hai".

The intriguing trailer promises powerful performances by all the actors, enthralling dialogues, and drama.

The trailer perfectly showcases Kangana gracefully bringing the journey of the late politician to the big screen. It also gave glimpses of Jayalalithaa's love life and how she was treated for being a woman in the male-dominated society.

From powerful background music that complements the pace of the trailer to some intense performances, the trailer features it all. And it's safe to say that their fans are in for a visual treat.

Tracing the life journey of one of the most influential women in Indian politics, the film has been grabbing eyeballs ever since its inception. Helmed by A. L. Vijay and written by Vijayendra Prasad, the film is a multilingual biopic positioned for a pan-India release.

The movie stars Kangana as Jayalalithaa, Arvind Swami as politician M. G. Ramachandran, and Prakash Raj as Karunanidhi. Jisshu Sengupta and Bhagyashree will also appear in pivotal roles.

Presented by Vibri Motion pictures, Karma Media Entertainment, and Zee Studios in association with Gothic Entertainment and Sprint films, 'Thalaivi' has been produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shailesh R Singh and co-produced by Hitesh Thakkar and Thirumal Reddy.

The Kangana Ranaut-starrer is set to release worldwide in Hindi, Tamil, and Telegu by Zee Studios on April 23, 2021.
