She has played enough of tragic roles and now she is doing a romcom also. But what seems to be the most challenging character for her is the role of a bold journalist in Mani Shankar's next.
Incidentally, her role is that of a topnotch journalist who works in a prominent news channel. The reel life character sounds strikingly similar to broadcast journalist Barkha Dutt.

A source said, “Kangana is quite excited about playing a journalist for the first time. Sanjay Dutt and Irrfan Khan are the two key characters as government agents from different walks of life who come together to raise Rs 32,000 crore in two hours. Kangana, who has a great fashion sense and is known to always experiment with her roles, is very excited about her different look in the film. She will be chopping off her trademark curly tresses and sport a short hairstyle to look like Barkha Dutt.”
Good to see the tragedy queen arriving in the real world!
