Kangana has just returned from a much deserved holiday and looks like she is wasting no time in getting back to work. The actress has been preparing hard for the Rani Laxmibai Biopic and looks like she will start shooting for it on her birthday itself. Kangana celebrates her 30th birthday on March 23 and instead of having a party, she has decided to keep herself busy with work. She will slip into the warrior queen’s fierce avatar and face the camera.
It’s been two years since Kangana was working on a script with director Ketan Mehta. The two had collaborated for a film on Rani Laxmibai. The recent buzz also says that Kangana will not be shooting the same with Ketan now. As per the sources, Kangana and Ketan have fallen out, and the actor has chosen another director for the biopic.
Mehta wanted to shoot his film in English as he wanted the biopic to have a global appeal. But Kangana, who also worked on the script, had a different opinion. A source was quoted as telling the daily, “Ketan was insistent that his movie be made in English for an international audience, like Gurinder Chadha’s The Viceroy House, but those working on the film felt it won’t go with the ethos of the story. The actress and the filmmaker couldn’t find common ground on the language factor, leaving the project in a limbo.”
23 March, Kangana will shoot for the first poster of Manikarnika(real name of Rani Laxmibai). With Kangana out of out Ketan’s film, she has joined hands with director Krish of Gabbar Is Back fame for the biopic. The story has been written by KV Vijayendra Prasad, writer of Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
