Taking the unconventional route and standing apart from the rest has always worked for Kangana Ranaut. Last weekend the actress just surprised everyone with her first look poster of her upcoming movie titled Thalaivi.

Set to play actor-turned-politician J Jayalalithaa, the actress attained the former CM of Tamil Nadu’s look with heavy prosthetics.
While superb prosthetics work gave her the desired look on screen, the actress struggled to gain weight for this role. During her interaction with a leading tabloid Mid-Day, she revealed a secret that helped her gain 6 kilos. The actress revealed taking light dosage of hormone pills to put on weight on her thighs and around her belly. She said, “Vijay (producer) wanted me to resemble her as closely as possible. She [Jayalalithaa] endured a drastic physical transformation in her life. Having grown up as a Bharatanatyam dancer, she had an hour-glass figure. Then, when she joined politics, she had an accident which demanded that she be injected with huge doses of steroids. While we could not depict all of that, we did take measures [to resemble her during these phases].” ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut's Jayalalithaa Biopic: Filmmakers Receive Notice From Madras High Court
