As the teaser of the second song from Thalaivii, Teri Aankhon Mein was launched yesterday, audiences are spellbound to see the recreation of Tamil icons Jayalalitha and MGR in it. Kangana Ranaut and Arvind Swami’s makeover as the legendary personalities seems perfect and it takes everyone back to the old style of acting of the couple. 

In a recent chat with Mid-Day, Kanagana opened up about her attachment to the role and said Teri Aankhon Mein is a tribute to the Tamil cinema icons. She also shared about the hard work she put into recreating Jaya on screen and added that she watched the old tracks keenly and observed even the slightest moments of the actress-turned-politician.

“Jaya Amma’s songs are significant because they are a part of pop culture. This song is an amalgamation of those tracks,” said Kangana. Jayalalitha and MGR have worked on 60 to 70 songs together. The team has tried to crack them all in a span of four days, as Kangana would go through numerous looks and hairstyles in a day. 

Even as she has been receiving appreciation for the song, Kangana said that all that she wanted was to bring back the magic Jayalalitha and MGR shared on to the screen, and make them look ‘authentic’. She believes that the authenticity in bringing back the couple’s lives on screen will be revered by the audience.

Kangana also revealed that the song was shot just before she had put on weight for shooting the latter half of the film. She added that the director Vijay made sure she was well fed and even the homemade meals from his mother were ready for her every day in three tiffins.

Teri Aankhon Mein has been composed by G V Prakash Kumar and the singers are Arman Malik and Prajakta Shukre. The full song will be released on Monday, and the movie is set for a theatrical release for September 10. The song, Chali Chali from the movie, which was previously released, was also well-received by movie buffs.
