Actress, producer, and now-turned-director, Kangana Ranaut is all set to bring to us a gripping story from India’s history. Her next directorial Emergency puts light upon the 1975 event which is considered to be the darkest period from post-Independence India. And today, as the actual event clocks in 48 years the actress and director of the film, Kangana, revisited the time that changed a great deal in India’s political history. Kangana is bringing to us a film based on this very same event with a stellar star cast. She will be seen playing the role of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in this period drama.
48 years down the line, Kangana took to Twitter giving all her fans a little blast from the past. She shared a detailed account of what happened in 1975 India and how declaring the Emergency was a landmark decision for the Indian National Congress. While Kangana had been treating fans to various looks of characters from the film, yesterday, she further shared an announcement video bringing the world of Emergency a little closer for the audience.
Talking about the same Kangana shares, “Through the course of filming Emergency, learning about the events that unfolded in 1975 gave me a deeper understanding of Indian history. People call it the darkest phase in Indian history, but a lot of people don’t understand why Indiraji took the decision she did. With the film, I aspire to bring that side of the story out too. I am sure, a lot of people will view those events in a different light after watching the film.”
