Netizens were taken aback at the striking resemblance of Kangana Ranaut to the late Indira Gandhi. They were surprised to find that an actor who had previously bore a striking resemblance to J. Jayalalitha in another role could look so similar to Indira Gandhi now. With four National Awards to her credit, Ranaut has a special talent for portraying powerful women in films, be it the Queen of Jhansi Lakshmibai (Manikarnika) or the superstar-turned-politician, the late J. Jayalalitha.

The film is produced and directed by Ranaut. The teaser shows that Indira Gandhi receives a phone call from the US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger asking whether US President Richard Nixon can address her as Ma’am instead of Sir. Indira Gandhi. She says “yes” but instructs her secretary to communicate to President Nixon that everyone in her office refers to her as “Sir.”

According to Ranaut, the emergency has a special significance in Indian politics as it changed the public viewpoint on power. She further added that she is starting the shooting after thorough research and understanding. Her make-up and look were perfected by the Oscar-winning make-up artist David Malinowski, famous for films like Darkest Hour (2017), and The Batman (2022). The film will be released next year.
