Kangana Ranaut who made her directorial debut from the film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, is soon going to direct her own biopic.
Confirming the news to Mumbai Mirror, Kangana said, “Yes, it is true, my own story is the subject of my next directorial. But it is not a propaganda film with characters who are starkly black and white, rather it is a sincere, heartfelt account of my journey so far with plenty of lighter moments. I’m emboldened by the love of the people around me, who have never judged me but accepted me for who I am.”

According to sources, the biopic will be written by Baahubali fame KV Vijayendra who also wrote Manikarnika. Kangana added, “Around 12 weeks ago, he (KV Vijayendra) urged me to let him write a film based on my life. I was nervous and wary initially, but then, given his stature and the fact that I trust him implicitly, I gave Vijayendra sir the go-ahead to the project.”
Further, when the actress was asked about if she’s planning to touch upon people with whom she’s had differences in the past, Kangana replied, “How can I show my journey without people, I can’t be walking alone. But we will not be taking any names. The idea is to project me and my life with all its highs and lows. In the end, it is the story of an achiever, a girl from the mountains who came into Bollywood without any connections in the industry or even a godfather, and went on to carve a niche for herself against all odds, with some memorable films like Gangster, Tanu Weds Manu and its sequel, Fashion, Queen and more recently Manikarnika, bagging three National Awards along the way.”
On the work front, Kangana will be next seen in ‘Mental Hai Kya’ and ‘Panga’.
