This started when Ram Gopal Varma praised Kangana Ranaut for her performance in Thailavi.
Reacting to her performance in the trailer filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma took to his Twitter handle and reacted, ‘the actor deserves a salute for her performance.’ He wrote, “Hey @KanganaTeam I might disagree with u on certain overreaches in some specific regions but I want to salute u for being so super duper special #ThalaiviTrailer is just MINDBLOWING and I am sure JAYALALITHA must be thrilled in heaven.”
Reacting to this she retweeted, “Hey sir… I don’t disagree with you on anything… I like and appreciate you very much, in this dead serious world where egos and prides get hurt so easily I appreciate you cause you don’t take anything seriously not even yourself…. Thank you for compliments.”
Earlier, Kangana had invited strong reactions from social media when she had called herself the most versatile actor, at par with Hollywood legends such as Meryl Streep. She had also suggested that Meryl, who holds the record for the most number of Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, could not pull off films such as Queen and Tanu Weds Manu.
Kangana had lashed out, questioning the number of Oscars she won. “Anyone who is asking how many oscars I have can also ask how many national or Padma awards Meryl Streep has, answer is none, come out of your slave mentality. High time you all find some self respect and self worth.”
Thalaivi is biopic of former actress who became the most successful CM of Tamil Nadu, Jayalalithaa.
