New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Kangana Ranaut is basking on the success of her upcoming film Thailavi's trailer. The trailer, which was unveiled on Tuesday, is gearing immense applaud both from critics and the audience. In the trailer, we can see the 34-year-old actress in a captivating role and acing the look of Jayalalitha. Kangana during the trailer launch event shared that she was rejected by director Vijay for Thalaivi.

Recalling the incident, she told the media that Vijay was looking for her replacement while she was shooting for this film. According to her director, she didn't have a fluent-Tamil accent, and this reason was enough to consider her unfit for the role.

"While I was on roll, he was still auditioning and told me that I have found a crystal clear accent that I was looking for in Hyderabad. So, obviously, he has rejected me long ago," said Kangana during the launch event.

She continued, "My accent is nowhere close to being right. Tamil particularly is very difficult like Sanskrit. I had done the film now, but I don't think he has Okayed the accent till now."
