Kangana Ranaut starrer Thalaivii is just out in cinemas, and the team is waiting for the public reaction. Meanwhile, the actress who played the role of J Jayalalitha, the former chief minister of Tamil Nadu, hinted at her political interest at a press conference for the movie held on Thursday. 

Kangana has been active and vocal about many socio-political issues of our country. When the actress was asked if the movie would pave her way to politics, she said that she would need public support for that, and later if people like and support her, she would definitely give it a try. She also added that she is a nationalist and she spoke in earlier issues as a responsible citizen, not a politician. But currently, she seems to be happy being an actress.

The actress was accompanied by Vishnu Vardhan Induri, the producer of Thalaivii, and she feels that the movie narrates the life of Jayalalitha, but does not preach anything to the patriarchal society. She further added that the movie also shows how MGR has been a guru and mentor to her, showcasing that men should be supportive and help a woman grow in life.

She further revealed that the movie has changed her perspective towards politics and politicians. She has realised she had primitive insights then, but now she understands politics is not easy and has numerous challenges. 

Meanwhile, Kangana had played different looks in the movie and speaking about it, she said that she went through some health issues due to the weight gain, and performing classical dance with a heavy body was tougher. She also considers the movie to be her best, and working on the movie was also a brain churning process for her. 

Helmed by A L Vijay, the movie portrays Arvind Swami as M G Ramachandran. The film is released in multiple languages - Tamil, Hindi and Telugu, under the banner of Vibri Motion Pictures and Karma Media and Entertainment.
