Kangana Ranaut explains the process of playing Jayalalithaa in Thalaivii.

Kangana Ranaut’s Thalaivii is all set to release in theatres this Friday. Featuring Kangana in the titular role, the film is based on the life of cine icon and former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa. To get into the skin of the actor-politician, Kangana had a ‘spiritual’ and ‘psychological’ approach.

According to the 34-year-old actor, more than anything, she needs to understand the psychology of a character to play it efficiently. Also, she believes it is important to “fall in love with the character and their deepest, darkest truths”. In a recent interview, Kangana explained her prep to essay the role of Jayalalithaa.
