Kangana who has directed a small part in Manikarnika will now direct her biographical film which is a great news
After the huge success that Manikarnika: The queen of Jhansi has gained, Kangana has gathered confidence to direct a film all by herself. This time it is her own life story! Yes, Kangana Ranaut will be directing her next and is enthusiastic about the film which is in the scripting stage as of now.
The film is written by Vijayendra Prasad who has penned the franchise of Bahubali and Manikarnika. Hopefully this bio-pic will also be as popular as the other two written by Vijayendra. The film is set to hit the floor this November or December.
Kangana has fanally confirmed the news to Mumbai Mirror saying, “Yes, it is true, my own story is the subject of my next directorial. But it is not a propaganda film with characters who are starkly black and white, rather it is a sincere, heartfelt account of my journey so far with plenty of lighter moments. I’m emboldened by the love of the people around me, who have never judged me but accepted me for who I am.”
Kangana further explained how Vijayendra was excited and inspired Kangana to write a story about herself. “Then, around 12 weeks ago, he urged me to let him write a film based on my life. I was nervous and wary initially, but then, given his stature and the fact that I trust him implicitly, I gave Vijayendra sir the go-ahead to the project.”
When she was asked that the bio-pic will show her past life, then she said, “How can I show my journey without people, I can’t be walking alone. But we will not be taking any names. The idea is to project me and my life with all its highs and lows. In the end, it is the story of an achiever, a girl from the mountains who came into Bollywood without any connections in the industry or even a godfather, and went on to carve a niche for herself against all odds, with some memorable films like Gangster, Tanu Weds Manu and its sequel, Fashion, Queen and more recently Manikarnika, bagging three National Awards along the way.”
