Kangana Ranaut, whose previous film, ‘Dhaakad,’ disappointed at the box office, has revealed her first look from the film “ ‘Emergency.’ The actress portrays Indira Gandhi, the late Prime Minister of India, in the film she wrote and directed.
‘Emergency,’ as the title indicates, is about Indira Gandhi’s declaration of internal emergency on June 25, 1975. It lasted until March 21, 1977, when the Janata Party won a historic election.
The prosthetics, dress, and demeanour all bear resemblance to the late Prime Minister. However, critics quickly pointed out that Kangana has to focus on her pronounciation of the term “Sir.”

Kangana stated of the film, “It highlights one of the most critical moments in Indian political history that impacted the way we approach power, which is why I wanted to portray this narrative.”
She continued, saying: “Furthermore, portraying a popular figure on television is always difficult since one must nail the appearance, traits, and demeanour. I spent a large amount of time studying the issue, and once I believed I had enough material, I began filming.”
Kangana portrayed late Tamil Nadu chief minister J. Jayalalitha in ‘Thalaivi,’ and Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi in ‘Manikarnika.’
Ritesh Shah wrote the movies lines, and he has previously worked on films such as ‘Kahaani,’ ‘Pink,’ ‘Raid,’ and ‘Airlift.’
