On top, Ranaut is a hard-working actress, who digs in the role of her character. The actress realized the importance of learning Tamil to connect with the character and the audience, and went ahead despite facing difficulties learning it. She is took classes for Bharatnatyam.

In a press conference, Kangana shared her experience learning the language and said “I am finding it difficult to learn Tamil. This film will be released in Hindi and Tamil, so we will do something about it. Obviously, I have to mug up those dialogues because Tamil is not an easy language. Earlier, I was trying to learn the complete Tamil language because I have learned English as well, but now I am learning Tamil as per the demand of film’s script”.


Rangoli Chandan sister, as well as Kangana’s Manager, tweeted a picture of the actress comparing her look to ‘Jaya Amma’.


However, the film is hitting the theaters this year in June. Kangana is already sweating hard for her upcoming projects ‘Tejas’ & Dhaakad’. Recently, team Kangana shared a video. In the video, the actress is with her Gym trainer promising her fans to lose 20 kgs in 2 months.
