On Tuesday, Kangana retweeted a post that read, “First time a film is allowed to shoot in parliament, a small portion of the film Emergency will soon be shot in parliament.” Reacting to this, the actor wrote: “This is not true, it’s fake news!!!”
Earlier, PTI sources claimed that Kangana wrote a letter to the Lok Sabha Secretariat. In her letter she asked to be allowed to shoot the film based on the Emergency inside the Parliament buildings. Sources said that permission is not granted to private entities to take or record any kind of video recording inside the Parliament buildings normally. However, it may be a different case for any official or government project. State broadcasters Doordarhan and Sansad TV are among the only ones allowed to film programs or events inside Parliament.
Emergency is a political drama, directed and produced by Kangana. In the film, the actor will be seen playing the role of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. On her death anniversary, Kangana said, “Bharat ki pratham mahila pradhan mantri, Bharat Ratan shrimati Indira Gandhi ji ki puniye tithi par unhe naman (Salute to the first Prime Minister of India, Bharat Ratna awardee Indira Gandhi on her death anniversary ) #IndiraGandhi. “
Apart from Kangana, the film will also feature actors Anupam Kher, Milind Soman, Mahima Chaudhry, Satish Kaushik and Shreyas Talpade in key roles. Filming for Emergency began in June this year. Recently the team of the film completed their schedule in Assam.
Kangana announced the film, Emergency in 2021. The script is by Ritesh Shah, who also wrote Kangana’s last film Dhaakad, which failed at the box office. Sharing the update to Koo, he said, “I’m glad to be wearing the director’s hat again, after working on Emergency for over a year, I finally realized that no one can direct it better than me. I am working with the wonderful writer Ritesh Shah, even if it means sacrificing various acting assignments, I am determined to do it, my excitement is high. This is going to be a huge journey, my jump into another league #Emergency #Indira.”
