Simi Garewal, a veteran actor and host of a celebrity chat show, was seen with Kangana Ranaut at a preview screening of Thalaivii in Mumbai on Friday. Simi took to Twitter shortly after to offer her thoughts on the film.

Simi, who had interviewed former actor and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa for her popular chat show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal way back in 1999, shared that Jayalalithaa wanted Aishwarya Rai to play her role if there was ever a biopic made on her. Simi underlined that she "does not accept Kangana Ranaut's radical comments" before offering her thoughts on the film. 

“Altho I do not condone #KanganaRanaut's radical comments,” Simi tweeted after watching Thalaivii with Kangana. 

I am a fan of her acting abilities. She puts her heart and soul into #Thailavii! Jaya-Ji wanted Aishwarya Rai to play her, but I have a feeling JJ would have approved of Kangana's performance. @thearvindswamy, on the other hand, is MGR reincarnated!!”

Simi also could not stop appreciating Arvind Swami’s portrayal of MGR in Thalaivi. She wrote, “You forget he is Arvind Swamy! You believe he REALLY is MGR! But they left out JJ’s childhood..I wish they hadn’t. It wud have had a stronger impact in the story of Jayalalithaa.. but that’s only my opinion..”
