Kangana Ranaut is back to her fit self after gaining 20 kilograms to play the titular role in the Jayalalithaa biopic Thalaivi. The actor on Wednesday shared her latest photos on Twitter.

Stating that she has done every possible thing to execute a role to perfection, Kangana wrote, “I played the first superhuman girl on Indian screen, thanks to my body, a rare combination of dainty yet strong looking. In my 30s, I had to gain 20 kgs for Thalaivi and do Bharatanatyam, it left my back severely damaged but no bigger gratification than to play a role to perfection.”

Adding that she still has five more kilograms to lose, the Thalaivi star tweeted, “Journey back to my fit body wasn’t easy, I feel good but even in seven months not able to achieve my earlier stamina and agility back and those last 5 kgs aren’t budging. There are moments of despair and then my director Vijay sir shows me Thalaivi footage and all seems fine.”
