Kangana Ranaut all set to play former PM Indira Gandhi.


After essaying cine icon and former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa in the biopic Thalaivi, Kangana Ranaut is all set to play another political leader in an upcoming film. The actor will play former Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi in a political drama helmed by Sai Kabir.

Confirming the development, Kangana, in a statement, said that the movie won’t be a biopic but will cover significant moments of Indian political history including Operation Blue Star and The Emergency.

“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, it is a political drama that will help my generation to understand (the) socio-political landscape of current India,” the actor said in a statement.
