Kangana Ranaut’s next directorial is a heartfelt account of her own journey

Kangana Ranaut says she is preparing to bring her own life story to the big screen as a director.

In a statement the actress revealed the project won’t be a propaganda but a sincere, heartfelt account of my journey

“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,” she added.

KV Vijayendra, who wrote Kangana’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi will also be writing Kangana’s biopic.

The film is said to go on floors by the end of this year in either October or November.

Kangana said Vijayendra “urged” her, around 12 weeks ago, to let him write a film based on her 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 on the project,”

The biopic will focus on various aspects of her life but would not name people who have had differences with her in the past. “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 protect me and my life with all its highs and lows,” said Kangana.

Calling it a story of an achiever she said, “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,”

She was last seen in Manikarnika that marked her directorial debut, the film was produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain and Nishant Pitti.

Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi released on 25 January 2019.
