Kangana unveiled her new look from Emergency on Thursday via an Instagram post with the caption, “Presenting #EmergencyFirstLook! Portraying one of the most powerful and controversial women in the history of the world… #Emergency shoot begins.” She went on to share her first look teaser and wrote, “Presenting ‘Her’ who was called ‘Sir’.”
Kangana has written and is directing Emergency. Ritesh Shah of Pink fame has penned the screenplay and dialogues of the film. The actor, who co-directed the 2019 movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, said she was fascinated by the power dynamics that came into play at the time. “Emergency reflects one of the most important periods in Indian political history which changed the way we view power and that’s why I decided to tell this story,” the actor said in a statement. Emergency is reportedly based on the happenings in India from 1975 to 1977.
“Playing a public figure on screen is always a challenge because one has to get the look, the characteristics and the persona right. I spent a significant amount of time researching the subject and once I felt I had enough ammunition, I commenced on the film’s shoot,” she added.
