An entertainment portal quoted Ranaut, “Yes, we are working on the project and the script is in the final stages. It is not the biopic of Indira Gandhi, it is a grand period film, to be precise a political drama that will help my generation to understand (the) socio-political landscape of current India.” Kangana further added, “Many prominent actors will be part of this film and of course I am looking forward to playing the most iconic leader that we have had in the history of Indian politics.”
Kangana also said that the movie is based on a book. Director Sai Kabir, who collaborated with Kangana for Revolver Rani, will write the story and also direct the project. She will herself produce the film that will feature Emergency and Operation Blue Star. It is expected that the period film will be based on a big scale. The movie will have characters of Sanjay Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi, Morarji Desai, and Lal Bahadur Shashtri among other prominent figures.
