Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Sunday said that she will be shooting for her next film Emergency in Assam soon. Ranaut had been location hunting for the project since last week in various parts of the state, including Kaziranga and Karbi Anglong.
Talking to reporters at the airport, Ranaut said, “I have been to Assam several times. It is a beautiful place for shooting. I will return with my entire crew soon for shooting.”
Billed as the story of a watershed moment in the political history of India, Emergency is written and directed by Kangana Ranaut. She also stars as former prime minister Indira Gandhi in the upcoming film.
During her stay in Assam, the 35-year-old actor paid a courtesy call on Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday evening. “He (Sarma) extended his support for our team as we begin our outdoor schedule very soon in various locations of Assam…”Such an honour and privilege to get his support and encouragement. Many thanks sir,” Ranaut wrote on Instagram.
Sarma thanked the actor for choosing to shoot her film in the state.
