Kangana Ranaut attacks Bollywood for not appreciating Thalaivii:

Kangana Ranaut's Thalaivii released in theatres on September 10 and is now streaming on Netflix. The actor has again taken on Bollywood for not supporting the J Jayalalithaa biopic.

Kangana Ranaut’s latest outing, J Jayalalitha biopic Thalaivii, has largely been received warmly by film critics and audiences. Now the film is streaming on Netflix and the actor has penned a note of gratitude for her team. Taking to Instagram stories, Kangana wrote, “Rarely a film loved passionately and unanimously… And Thalaivii is one such film… I am glad people getting to know Purchai Thalaivi Dr J. Jayalalithaa’s story. also big thanks to my team for making a film which is a shining diamond in my filmography. #gratitude.”

Thalaivii is based on the life of former actress and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. The film features Kangana as Jayalalithaa and South superstar Arvind Swami as M. G. Ramachandran. The film explores the relationship between Jayalalithaa and MGR and the former’s rise as an actor and a politician. However, now that the film is streaming on Netflix, more people are able to watch it. Even as the movie released in theatres on September 10 in several parts of the country, it did not see a theatrical release in Mumbai. Now, Kangana, who often targets Bollywood and refers to a “Bollywood Mafia” has urged the the Hindi film fraternity to come forward and show support by appreciating her film. Kangana Ranaut has urged fellow Bollywood actors to support her film.
