On Thursday, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut commenced shooting for her upcoming film 'Emergency', in which she essays the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The social media is swarmed by her fans as they loved her look as Indira Gandhi. The actress was heaped with praises from all corners.
The actress posted a photo from the special pooja ritual along with the movie's teaser and her first glimpse as Gandhi on Instagram.
The Thalaivii actress captioned the picture as,
"Most amazing day of my life... it's like a rebirth. Be a filmmaker will always be my favourite job."
The movie is touted as telling the tale of a turning point in Indian politics. Also Ritesh Shah of 'Pink' fame has penned the screenplay and dialogues of the upcoming film.
According to a report from Etimes, the Queen actress had stated in a statement, "Emergency' depicts one of the most significant moments in Indian political history which impacted the way we approach power and that's why I opted to convey this narrative."
Gandhi implemented the Emergency, a 21-month period from 1975 to 1977 during which the people's fundamental rights were severely restricted.
Ranaut, who essayed the role of the late actor-politician J Jayalalithaa in 2021's 'Thalaivi', said it is always challenging to play a renowned personality. In 'Manikarnika', she starred as the freedom fighter Rani Lakshmi Bai of Jhansi. No wonder the actress is successfully bringing the lost renowned names of history to light.
