#ThalaiviTrailer looks promising and engaging! If the screenplay is able to replicate same kind of engagement factor, it will be a sure shot winner. @KanganaTeam @thearvindswami @thondankani #ALVijay pic.twitter.com/pPTXxIagtq

Kangana is seen bringing to life the extraordinary personality of the woman who once was an actress and later took over the political scenario in the state of Tamil Nadu. Watch the trailer here.
While the trailer shows Kangana dancing as Jayalalithaa and performing as an actress, it also shows the ups and downs of the political stalwart’s life. Viewers get to witness the bond between Jayalalithaa and MG Ramachandran (MGR). After the unfortunate death of MGR, she won people’s hearts with her work and stood out as an independent leader.
Directed by AL Vijay and produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh, the film’s cast includes Arvind Swami, Nassar, Bhagyashree, Samuthrakani in pivotal roles. The biopic will be released in multiple languages including Hindi and Tamil. Thalaivi will release theatrically on April 23, 2021.
