It will hard to imagine that the actor whom we saw in Roja, Dhruva kind of movies is the same one in this image. Yes, it is Aravind Swamy.
He nailed the look of MG Ramachandran, the biggest matinee idol of Tamil Cinema, who later became Chief Minister of the state by constructing AIADMK party, from the parent, DMK & DK parties.
For the movie, Thalaivi, the actor has undergone such transformation and he just looks perfect, doesn't he. Even Kangana Ranaut in the lead role of Jayalalitha, looked perfect.
AL Vijay, the director, has the knack of casting perfect people for the roles and he just needs to deliver on the strong content promise.
Kangana's older look as Jayalalitha attracted trolls due to the heavy weight mask and make-up. But Aravind Swamy looks just like young MGR, and it will be hard to identify for ardent fans of the legend.
Team released the pic on the occasion of MGR's birthday on 17th January. We will know more details about the release of the film, soon.
