Kangana to play Indira Gandhi in political period drama

Kangana to play Indira Gandhi

Kangana Ranaut will essay the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in an upcoming political drama. The actress says the yet-untitled film is not a biopic and has also revealed that many prominent actors will be a part of the upcoming project. 

"Yes, we are working on the project and the script is in 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," said Kangana.

"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," she said. She added that "the film is based on a book", although she did not elaborate on which written work.

The actress will produce the film that will feature Emergency and Operation Blue Star. Director Sai Kabir, who worked with her earlier in Revolver Rani will write the story and screenplay, and also direct the project. Kabir flew to Bhopal where the actress is currently shooting for Dhaakad and has already done a few sittings with the actress. The screenplay is ready, according to sources.
