I personally feel that unless you KNOW it is Kangana, she is not recognisable in the poster.
The poster created quite a stir, and you can’t drive past a single wall in Chennai without seeing the Thalaivi poster.
To be honest, it was only when I saw her name on the poster that I knew it was Kangana in the role of Jayalalithaa.
It is quite clear that she is wearing prothetics and a fat suit, and that it is not her own body.
Isn’t her criticism of the film industry being ageist backfiring now, that she herself is playing the role of a much older person, instead of just playing the younger version of Jayalalithaa, and letting an older actress play the older scenes?
