Ranaut in previous interviews has revealed, aside from prosthetics, she relied on hormone pills to gain dramatic weight. “As a Bharatanatyam dancer, madam Jayalalithaa had an hour-glass figure. The pills were needed so as to look voluptuous, especially around the thighs and belly. I am tall and skinny and my face is angular, not round; so I had to take mild doses of hormone pills to look different.”

Kangana Ranaut sports Jayalalithaa’s trademark white saree and red bindi.
