Simi Garewal says Jayalalitha would have approved Kangana Ranaut’s Thalaivii, supports her acting talent

Garewal said she doesn't support Kangana Ranaut's radical comments, but supports her acting talent.

Actor and celebrity chat show host Simi Garewal was invited to a screening of Thalaivii by Kangana Ranaut on Friday. Soon after watching the film, the veteran actress shared her take on the film on Twitter saying she doesn’t support Kangana Ranaut’s radical comments, but supports her acting talent.

The 73-year-old actress also revealed that the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu wanted Aishwarya Rai to play her role if there was ever a biopic made on her, but the late CM would have approved Ranaut’s portrayal as well. Simi had interviewed former actor and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa for her popular chat show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal way back in 1999.

Garewal wrote: Altho I do not support Kangana Ranaut’s radical comments. I do support her acting talent. In Thalaivii she gives it her heart & soul! Jaya-ji wanted Aishwarya to play her..my hunch is JJ wud hv approved of Kangana’s portrayal. As for @thearvindswamy he is MGR reincarnate!!

Calling Arvind Swamy the reincarnation of MGR, Garewal wrote: You forget he is Arvind Swamy! You believe he REALLY is MGR! But they left out JJ’s childhood..I wish they hadn’t. It wud have had a stronger impact in the story of Jayalalithaa.. but that’s only my opinion.

Thalaivii is a biopic of actor-turned-politician and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalitha, portrayed by Kangana Ranaut. The film revolves around the life of the iconic figure, capturing her journey from her time in the movies to becoming a politician. MG Ramachandran (MGR) was a mentor figure to Jayalalithaa, the role which Arvind Swami is portraying in the film. 

Directed by AL Vijay, the film is produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shailesh R Singh under their banners Vibri Media, Karma Media, And Entertainment in association with Gothic Entertainment and Sprint films respectively.

The film also stars Bhagyashree, Jisshu Sengupta, and Prakash Raj in pivotal roles. The film is a multilingual biographical drama that has been simultaneously shot in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
