New Delhi: Kangana Ranaut is known for her fearless attitude. She always makes sure to put up a strong front, but while launching the trailer of her upcoming biopic Thalaivi, the actress broke down. Kangana got teary-eyed while talking about her bond with director Vijay and thanked him for encouraging her. A video making rounds on the Internet shows the actress speaking at the launch and heaping praises at Thalaivi’s director Vijay. In the video, Kangana said, “I want to say that he (Vijay) is one person who has made me feel good about my talent. Especially the kind of camaraderie they show with the male hero, they never show with an actress. But I learnt from him, how to treat actors and how to show creative partnership.”
Sharing the video on her Twitter timeline, Kangana wrote, “I call myself Babbar Sherni cause I never cry I never give anyone the privilege of making me cry, don’t remember when I cried last but today I cried and cried and cried and it feels so good.”
Earlier on Kangana’s birthday, the trailer of Thalaivi was out. Based on the life of actress-turned-politician J Jayalalithaa, Thalaivi will hit the theaters on April 23.
For the role, Kangana is said to have gained 20 kilos and undergone body transformation. On multiple occasions, the actress mentioned how gaining weight took a toll on her health. “I played the first super humangirl on Indian screen, thanks to my body a rare combination of dainty yet strong looking, in my 30’s I had to gain 20 kgs for Thalaivi n do Bharatnatyam,it left my back severely damaged but no bigger gratification than to play a role to perfection,” she wrote on Twitter.
It was just a day before her birthday, Kangana was announced as the winner of the National Film Awards in the Best Actress category for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Panga. Talking about Kangana’s Workfront, she will be next seen in Dhaakad and Tejas.
