New Delhi: The first look and teaser of the much-anticipated biopic on late Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa were unveiled today. Kangana Ranaut, who plays the role of the CM in the film, looks promising as Jayalalitha-the actress while fans have mixed reaction to her look as Jayalalitha-the politician.
