Simi also praised Arvind Swamy in the comments on her tweet and revealed the one complaint she had from the film.
“You forget he is Arvind Swamy! You believe he REALLY is MGR! But they left out JJ’s childhood..I wish they hadn’t. It would have had a stronger impact in the story of Jayalalithaa.. but that’s only my opinion,” the veteran actress wrote.
Besides Kangana Ranaut, Thalaivii also stars Madhoo, Prakash Raj, Jisshu Sengupta, Bhagyashree, and Poorna in pivotal roles.
On the work front, Kangana will be next seen in Dhaakad and Tejas.
