Earlier this week, Anupam Kher revealed his first look from the film. He plays the role of Jai Prakash Narayan in the film. Speaking about it, the veteran actor said in a press statement, “Kangana’s interpretation of JP Narayan is fascinating. She believes and it’s also the truth that JP Narayan is a hero of the film not just because I am playing the character. Her treatment of the character is like that of a hero.”
Before Emergency, Kangana essayed the role of a real life person in Thalaivi. She played the titular role of former chief minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa.
Kangana was recently seen in Dhaakad, which proved to be a box office dud. She has Tejas next in line. She will be seen as an Indian Air Force officer in the film directed by Sarvesh Mewara.
