Kangana Ranaut says Congress in Emergency | Bollywood is not portrayed in a bad light

Actress Kangana Ranaut has responded to claims that her upcoming film ‘Emergency’ aims to show the Congress in a bad light and will eventually hit theaters around the 2024 Lok Sabha elections as she is an avid supporter of the Narendra Modi-led party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The film is said to be a historical drama and not a biopic, based on former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Kangana told Times Now Navbharat that she did not favor any political party in her film.

Kangana Ranaut on her preference for the emergency BJP in the election campaign

When asked about the allegations related to Emergency, Kangana Ranaut said in Hindi, “If you want to know a person, then pay attention to their actions and not their words.” The interviewer chimed in, “But according to your actions you do the movie. You are the director.” The actor replied, “Then watch the film. The film will be released, but I’m not sure if it will be released in conjunction with the elections. It has nothing to do with elections or any political party. I would also like to say that it is also an ode to our Prime Minister who was elected three times. It is her life story, no matter what good or bad she has done. Like I said, a woman is representative in her own right. But to assume right now that I favored one (political party) is a wrong perception.”

Kangana: Prime Minister Modi holds the torch of humanity

Talking about the film, she also said that while researching for Emergency, she found out that Indira Gandhi was “bullied” in the past. She said, “Maine Khud Emergency me Mrs Gandhi ki biopic me kaam kia hai.” Nixon ne unhe kis tarah se treat kia tha, ki buri baat media me bola tha aur kitna bully kia tha unko (When I was researching Indira Gandhi, I found out how she was bullied by Richard Nixon). But now, with force and only love, PM Modi is literally holding the torch of humanity. We Indians are so proud.”


“Emergency” marks Kangana’s solo directorial debut. In the film she plays India’s first female prime minister, Indira Gandhi. The film also stars Anupam Kher, Milind Soman, Mahima Chaudhry, late Satish Kaushik and Shreyas Talpade in key roles. Written by Dhakaad-based Ritesh Shah, the film was announced in 2021. Earlier, a teaser was released that appreciated Kangana’s performance as the Prime Minister. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on November 24, 2023.

Kangana in Parliament

On Tuesday, Kangana reached the New Parliament House to welcome the Union Cabinet’s decision to approve the Women’s Reservation Bill for discussion. She and actress Esha Gupta were among the special guests. She told news agency ANI, “This is a historic day…this (new Parliament building) is a symbol of Amritkaal…such an important day that the BJP could talk about any issue or any bill…but they chose women. “ Empowerment. This shows their thoughts and way of thinking. Our country is in capable hands…”
