After receiving a roaring response to ‘Teri Aankhon Mein’, the makers of Kangana Ranaut’s Thalaivii are set to unveil yet another facet of Jayalalithaa’s cinematic career with the upcoming song Nain Bandhe Naino Se’.
Putting forth the Bharatnatyam skills of Kangana for the first time that she learnt for the film, the song takes us to an interesting turn in the professional as well as the personal life of Jayalalithaa.
Ruling Superstar of Tamil Cinema, Jayalalithaa was trained in Carnatic music, western classical piano and various forms of classical dance, including Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, Mohiniyattam, Manipuri, Kathak.
Opening up about the experience of performing Bharatnatyam for the first time, Kangana Ranaut shares, “Every day working on ‘Thalaivii’ has been a learning experience for me. This song challenged me to learn a new art form- Bharatnatyam. Jaya maa was an incredible powerhouse of talent, she was a trained dancer and playing her, I had to look believable in my craft on screen. Taking up new challenges makes me stronger, so I took up the task to learn this traditional dance form- Bharatnatyam. With innumerable hours of rehearsals, practice and finally the shoot, we have offered our sweat and blood with ‘Nain Bandhe Naino Se’ and I’m thrilled to present the song to the world.”
Shot across four days, ‘Nain Bandhe Naino Se ‘ required strenuous efforts with fifteen days of set work and over a month of dance rehearsals before the shoot.
