Bollywood Desk: For Kangana Ranaut, it is a "very special day" as she resumed work after seven months on Thursday and informed her followers about it on Twitter. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, work was stalled and today, Kangana travelled to south India for her "most ambitious bilingual project" Thalaivi.

The actor posted a few morning selfies on social media on Thursday and expressed her excitement to be resuming work after the hiatus. Throughout this entire period, Kangana has been busy with her social media debut, her verbal war with many prominent names in the country, and her fearless statements in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Now, the actor posted to inform her fans that she was flying to South India to finish her ‘most ambitious’ bilingual project Thalaivi in which she plays the role of celebrated actor and politician J Jayalalithaa.

She also clicked a few morning selfies and shared the pictures for her Twitter family.

"Dear friends today is a very special day, resuming work after 7 months, travelling to southern India for my most ambitious bilingual project THALAIVI, need your blessings in these testing times of a pandemic. P.S. Just clicked these morning selfies hope you all like them," Kangana said in her post.

Earlier on Wednesday, the actor tweeted to express disgust on the news of a 19-year-old girl succumbing to her injuries after being gang-raped in UP’s Hathras. While most part of the country is agitated with how UP CM Yogi Adityanath is running the state, Kangana said that she believes in Yogi’s administration and she’s hopeful for justice. “I have immense faith in @myogiadityanath ji, just how Priyanka Reddy rapists were shot dead on the very spot they raped and burnt her alive we want the same emotional, instinctive and impulsive justice for #HathrasHorror #HathrasHorrorShocksIndia” (sic), she posted.

Thalaivi, based on the life of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, is being directed by AL Vijay. The film is being made in two parts.

Team Thalaivi team spent more than a year in pre-production and collected materials to formulate the screenplay.Meanwhile, Kangana has got around four films in her kitty apart from Thalaivi. She’s working on Tejas in which she plays the role of an Indian Air Force pilot, followed by a film titled Dhaakad which is an out-and-out action entertainer. The actor recently announced a film titled Aparajita Ayodhya which is based on the Babri Masjid demolition incident, apart from her yet-to-be-titled film on the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits.
