She shared the list on her Instagram stories and wrote, "On a lighter note jaan ke tasalli hue deshadrohi sirf isi desh me nahi hain (relieved to know that traitors are not in just our country)."

In 'Thalaivii', Ranaut essays the role of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. The film narrates her relationship with MGR, played by Arvind Swami and her rise to power in Tamil Nadu.  Jayalalithaa died in December 2016 after 75 days of hospitalisation.

Recently, AIADMK in Tamil Nadu objected to certain references about party stalwarts--the late MG Ramachandran and J Jayalalithaa in 'Thalaivii', and wanted the scenes deleted. Senior AIADMK leader D Jayakumar said such references were factually incorrect and insisted that barring these flaws the film was well-made.
