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
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.
