Kangana Ranaut’s first solo directorial venture comes in the form of Emergency. As the actress filmmaker is gearing up to take on the role of Indira Gandhi for the upcoming film, she recently discussed how she loses herself when embracing a role for a movie.
Taking to Instagram, Kangana shared two pictures of herself, one taken during a photoshoot and the other from her role as late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the movie Emergency. She captioned the latter, “Today is a break day, I don’t call it a break I call it a pause day…. On such a blank beat you wonder where did you loose yourself….. You dissolve in the character and find that nothing of you is left in you. You see your own pictures like a stranger and wonder will you ever be the same ….. the truth is you can never go back to being the same person, once a character has happened to you it remains like a scar on the soul, like the darkness of the night, like the glow of the moon, like a realisation you can’t own, like a million shinning suns, like the dizzying hights of the mountains and suffocating depths of the sea….. a character will remain regardless of you … #emergency.”
The photo showed Kangana as she sat close to a camera with a serious gaze on her face. Photographically, the actor's side profile was shown. In the next picture, Kangana is seen posing for a photograph. She was looking at the camera while donning a pink dress with makeup.
The late politician's life is the focus of Kangana's film Emergency, which she is currently working on. Furthermore, J P Narayan, Pupul Jayakar, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw will be portrayed by Anupam Kher, Mahima Chaudhry, Shreyas Talpade, and Milind Soman, respectively in the film.
Kangana wrote and directed Emergency. The movie is a Manikarnika Films production, and Renu Pitti and Kangana are the producers.
