Actor turned director Kangana Ranaut starrer took to her social media and talked about her uncanny resemblance with late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
The Emergency is based on the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The film is about the internal Emergency that Indira Gandhi declared on June 25, 1975.
Sharing a picture of her wearing a school dress, the actress wrote, “It’s uncanny growing up, many of my relatives called me Indira Gandhi probably because of my hairstyle. #emergency”.
She shared another cute childhood picture: “I didn’t follow anyone’s hairstyle as a kid. I went to the village barber on my own and guided him to do hair cut that I liked short…this inspired many jokes in the family, especially all uncles from army background called me Indira Gandhi… #emergency.”
The Emergency narrates the tale of the Emergency, a turning point in the country’s political history, proclaimed by then-prime minister Indira Gandhi on June 25, 1975, and lasted until March 21 1977.
During these 21 months, among other restrictions, civil freedoms were curtailed, press censorship was implemented, and elections were called off. It is frequently referred to as one of the most contentious times in India’s history as an independent nation.
The movie’s release date for 2023 also features Vishak Nair, Milin Soman, Mahima Choudhary, Shreyas Talpade, and Anupam Kher in the critical parts.
