Emergency, which is based on the dark chapter of Independent India’s history when the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi imposed a state of emergency in India for a 21-month period. The film will see Kangana playing the role of Indira Gandhi and is her second directorial after the moderately successful film ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’.
Recently, the actress shared Milind Soman’s first look as Sam Manekshaw. With a sharp mustache and uniform, Milind’s look will surely leave you excited for the film. Sharing the poster, Kangana wrote, “Presenting the dynamic @milindrunning as #SamManekshaw, the man instrumental for saving India’s frontiers during the Indo-Pak war and whose service was as distinguished as his honesty; a charmer, a war hero and a visionary leader in #Emergency.”
Earlier, the actress had unveiled her look as Gandhi, followed by Anupa Kher’s look as late political leader Jayaprakash Narayan, Shreyas Talpade as the former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Mahima Chaudhry’s as Indira Gandhi’s close friend Pupul Jayakar. Kangana announced the movie last year and later clarified that even though Emergency is a political drama, it is not Indira Gandhi’s biopic.
