Kangana announced her project Emergency in 2021. While the film will be directed by the actor herself, it’s written by Ritesh Shah, who also wrote Kangana’s last film Dhaakad. She had updated about the film on Koo last year, “Pleased to wear director’s hat again, after working on Emergency for more than a year I finally figured no one can direct it better than me. Collaborating with fabulous writer Ritesh Shah, even if it means sacrificing on various acting assignments I am determined to do it, my excitement is high. This is going to be a tremendous journey, my leap to another league #Emergency #Indira.”

According to Kangana, Emergency is ‘not the biopic of Indira Gandhi’. She had clarified in a statement that the film ‘is a political drama that will help the generation to understand the socio-political landscape of current India.’ Apart from Emergency, Kangana also has Tejas, Manikarnika sequel and Sita: The Incarnation in her kitty.
