The Queen of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming film Thalaivi is all set to hit the cinema theatres tomorrow on 10th September 2021. The film depicts the life of former South Indian lady superstar and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalithaa. Kangana will be essaying the lead role of J Jayalalithaa in the film. She has been all in out for the promotions of the film in reality shows and TV interviews. But recently she was seen screening ‘Thalaivi’ for politicians in the capital, New Delhi. The screening was attended by several politicians including cabinet ministers, including Smriti Irani.
Smriti Irani if you don’t know was one of the most popular TV actresses in her prime. She has been part of the iconic TV serials like Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Virrudh, Ramayan and Maniben.com etc. But after quitting her filmy career she made an entry into politics with Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP). Currently, she holds the portfolio of Women and Child Development Minister in the Cabinet. Her journey seems similar to J Jayalalithaa who was too a superstar in Tamil Cinema and later ventured into politics and became the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
Talking of this similarity, Kangana mentioned Smriti Irani as a real-life ‘Thalaivi’ during the screening of the film. Kangana clicked pics with the ministers during the screening which are given below:
Kangana wrote on Instagram, “All ready for Parliamentarians and Ministers screening in Delhi …..
Rarely we celebrate our politicians and very few films on politics and politicians are made, one such rare film is Thalaivii based on former chief minister of Tamilnadu Dr.J.Jayalalithaa…. Honoured to be hosting a screening for prominent politicians today 🇮🇳”
