Anyone with eyes can see the brilliance: Rangoli Chandel defends Kangana Ranaut’s Thalaivi look

Kangana’s look as Jayalalithaa has been subject to much trolling on social media

Published: 26th November 2019

Rangoli Chandel, Kangana Ranaut’s sister and manager, has hit out at trolls criticising Kangana’s look from Thalaivi. Directed by Vijay, Thalaivi is a biopic on late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

The film’s first-look poster and teaser were released on November 23 and featured Kangana in two different looks: as a young film star in the 1960s and as a prominent politician in 1991. Kangana’s prosthetics for the latter are created by Hollywood make-up artist Jason Collins. This first look has come under fire on social media.

Retweeting a collage of the real Jayalalithaa and Kangana’s look, Rangoli wrote:

Samosa gang, here, refers to memes and tweets calling Kangana a potato. 

Rangoli also followed this up with other tweets about Thalaivi's first look.
