Kangana Ranaut To Play Indira Gandhi In Her Next?

Kangana Ranaut is all set to play the role of India’s former Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi. The film will be directed by Sai Kabir, who is also scripting the story and the screenplay.

Talking of the upcoming film, Kangana said, “Yes, we are working on the project and the script is in the final stages. It is not the biopic of Indira Gandhi, it is a grand period film, to be precise a political drama that will help my generation to understand (the) socio-political landscape of current India. Many prominent actors will be part of this film and of course, I am looking forward to playing the most iconic leader that we have had in the history of Indian politics.”

Kangana took to Twitter to announce the news, she said, “Happy to announce my dear friend Sai Kabir and I are collaborating on a political drama. Produced by Manikarnika Films. Written and Directed by Sai Kabir”, she also added a happy emoji.

She termed Indira Gandhi as “the most iconic leader that we have had in the history of Indian politics”. She also shared that “many prominent actors will be part of this film” who will be stepping in the shoes of political leaders like Sanjay Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi, Morarji Desai and Lal Bahadur Shashtri among others. The film, however, is yet-to-be-titled.


She also threw it back, with an old image from one of her photoshoots wherein she can be seen dressed up as Indira Gandhi and wrote, “This is a photoshoot about iconic women I did at the beginning of my career, little did I know one day I will get to play the iconic leader on screen.”

In the Twitter thread, Kangana also expressed her appreciation towards the ex PM, she quotes the popular author and politician and says, “She was very beautiful, not pin up girl type beautiful, her face was like when all the swords are drawn just before the King’s command….- Khushwant Singh”

Trolls always feel invited, whenever Kangana shares something over her social media. Yet again, the actress was trolled after making her announcement. But she does not care about them, we mean, who really does.
