Kangana Ranaut is all set to play another political leader in an upcoming film after trying out the cinema icon and former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa in the biopic Thalaivi. In a political drama helmed by Sai Kabir, the actor will play former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Kangana, in a statement confirming the production, said that the film will not be a biopic, but will cover important moments in Indian political history, including Operation Blue Star and The Emergency.

Yeah, the idea is being worked on, and the script is in the final stages. It is not Indira Gandhi's biopic. It's a great period movie. It's a political drama that will help my generation understand (the) socio-political landscape of present-day India, to be precise,' the actor said in a statement.

Kangana Ranaut looks forward to playing Indira Gandhi, whom she has referred to as "the most iconic leader we have ever had in Indian political history." She also shared that "many prominent actors will be part of this film," who, among others, will step into the shoes of political leaders such as Sanjay Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi, Morarji Desai and Lal Bahadur Shashtri. The still-to-be-titled film, The Indian Express, will be produced on a large scale.

Kangana has movies like Dhaakad and Tejas in her kitty, apart from this film. She is currently shooting in Bhopal for Dhaakad, an action thriller. She also revealed the second installment of the Manikarnika franchise, Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda, earlier this month.
