Kangana Ranaut upcoming film Thalaivi is something people were looking forward to but it looks like the first look of this film is not getting appreciated by netizens. It seems that the poster has failed to make an impact and getting trolled mercilessly. If you don’t know, Thalaivi is a biopic of the late politician, Jayalalithaa – the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. She passed away on December 5, 2016, because of a cardiac arrest. She was called ‘Puratchi Thalaivi’ which means a ‘revolutionary leader’.
The poster was released on Kangana’s Instagram handle and people can’t stop trolling Kangana and the filmmakers for showing poor prosthetics used on her face! Many people suggested keeping Kangana’s face as it is because all that is important is showing the life story, instead of making her look like Jayalalithaa.
