There’s just no stopping Kangana ranaut. Just weeks after the release of her directorial debut, Manikarnika;The queen of jhansi, which sparked off a controversy over her sharing the director’s credit with Krish, it has learnt that the actress is now all set to direct her own life story.
According to a source close to the development, the film is currently being scripted by KV Vijayendra Prasad who had earlier penned ‘Bahubali’ and its sequel, as also her recent period drama. The one-ofits-kind biopic will start towards the year-end, in October-November, after the release of Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Mental Hai Kya’, and the completion of ‘panga’ in June.
Kangana confirmed the news, saying, “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.”
She went on to inform that Vijayendra Prasad who was working with her for almost two years on ‘Manikarmnika’, had started another script for her. “Then, around 12 weeks ago, he 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 goahead to the project.”
