Kangana Ranaut has started preparations for her upcoming movie Thalaivi- Jayalalithaa's biopic. Directed by AL Vijay, the story of the film is written by KV Vijayendra Prasad, who had penned the story for the smash hit movie Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion. The film will feature four phases based on Jayalalithaa's life and Kangana will have four different looks in the film. A few weeks ago, producer of the film Vishnu Induri took to Twitter and revealed that Hollywood makeup artist Jason Collins has invited Kangana for a look test. Jason has worked in Captain Marvel, Hunger Games and Blade Runner.
Kangana left for Los Angeles two days ago for the same look test. Now photos of Kangana doing prosthetic makeup test have come out. Kangana's sister Rangoli posted some pictures on Twitter in which the actor is seen covered in prosthetic gum. With this, Rangoli wrote, "This is how measurements for prosthetics are taken, it’s not easy to be an actor, Kangana so calm even in something which is so suffocating for us to even watch.”
