While Kangana Ranaut has been garnering praise for her performance in ‘Thalaivii’, not many know that late J Jayalalithaa wanted Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to play her role.

Veteran actress Simi Garewal recently attended a special screening of the film by Kangana. After watching the movie, she took to her Twitter handle to review the film. The actress stated that although she doesn’t approve of Kangana’s radical comments, she supports her acting talent. Simi also revealed that although Jayalalithaa wanted Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to play her role, she would have approved of Kangana’s portrayal.

She wrote, ‘Altho I do not support #KanganaRanaut’s radical comments..I do support her acting talent. In #Thailavii she gives it her heart & soul! Jaya-ji wanted Aishwarya to play hunch is JJ wud hv approved of Kangana’s portrayal👍. As for @thearvindswamy he is MGR reincarnate!!’

Replying to a comment on her tweet, Simi further praised Arvind and shared the one complaint she had with the movie. She 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 would have had a stronger impact in the story of Jayalalithaa.. but that’s only my opinion.’

Apart from Kangana, ‘Thalaivii’ also stars Madhoo, Prakash Raj, Jisshu Sengupta, Bhagyashree, and Poorna in key roles. The film has been garnering positive reviews from the audience and the critics alike.

Meanwhile, Kangana also has some other interesting upcoming projects lined-up which include, ‘Dhaakad’ co-starring Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta. She is also a part of ‘Tejas’ where she will be essaying the role of an Air Force Pilot.
