Kangana Ranaut Transforms as Indira Gandhi in ‘Emergency
Based on the rough days of the emergency, “Emergency” gives a fresh look at a very important time in India’s past. Kangana Ranaut plays the charming and powerful Indira Gandhi in the movie, which is about her time as India’s first female Prime Minister.
The first trailer for the movie came out in June. It showed some of the chaos during the emergency and showed off Kangana’s strong performance as Indira Gandhi. Kangana’s speech showed how determined her character was when she said, “No one can stop me from protecting this country,” which made her clear that she would never give up on India.
Kangana had already talked about how dedicated she was to the project, saying that she had even put up her house as collateral to make the movie happen. “Emergency” stars Anupam Kher, Milind Soman, Mahima Chaudhry, the late Satish Kaushik, Shreyas Talpade, and more.
“Emergency” is an important movie that looks at a key moment in India’s political past, and people are looking forward to seeing Kangana Ranaut play Indira Gandhi.
