Kangana Ranaut is gearing up for one of the biggest projects in her career. The actress dons the director’s hat yet again for Emergency, which marks her first solo directorial venture. In addition to directing, Kangana also produces and stars in the film as well, essaying the role of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The actress recently revealed a delightful anecdote from her childhood which will definitely make you feel as though she was born to play the late politician on the silver screen.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Kangana shared two photographs from her childhood days, where she is sporting short hair. The first photo showed her wearing a school uniform and she captioned it “Its uncanny growing up many of my relatives called me Indira Gandhi probably because of my hairstyle #emergency”.

She shared a delightful anecdote from her childhood as well, writing “I didn’t follow anyone’s hairstyle as a kid I went to the village barber on my own and guided him to do haircut that I like, and I always liked it short…this inspired many jokes in the family especially all uncles from army background called me Indira Gandhi … #emergency”.
