Kangana Ranaut , who launched the trailer of her film Thalaivi, says nepotism exists in the south indian film industry too. The actress, who was the first to spark the debate about the same on Koffee With Karan, says outsiders aren't bullied in the south indian film industry. "Since Thalaivi is the culmination of many industries, one thing that I have noticed in the South film industries–be it Tamil or Telugu–is that there may be nepotism in the South film industry but there is no groupism and gangism. There’s no subjecting outsiders to bullying,” Kangana said.
Adding further, Ranaut said, “They are very supportive and inclusive of people who come from outside. And the kind of love and encouragement I have experienced here, I don’t want to leave. I’m here now. I hope to do many more films here." Thalaivi sees Kangana Ranaut in the role of Jayalalitha. The film has been directed by Vijay and it'll release in April.
About her Tamil accent in the film, Kangana says, "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. 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.
