Actor Shreyas Talpade will be essaying the role of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in Kangana Ranaut’s Emergency. Kangana will be playing Indira Gandhi, while Anupam Kher will play the role of Jayaprakash Narayan in the film.

The recently released teaser featured Kangana as Indira Gandhi. Earlier, talking about the film, Kangana had written on Instagram, “Pleased to wear director’s hat again. After working on Emergency for more than a year, I finally figured no one can direct it better than me. Collaborating with fabulous writer Ritesh Shah. Even if it means sacrificing on various acting assignments, I am determined to do it. My excitement is high. This is going to be a tremendous journey.”

The film’s story is by Kangana while the screenplay and dialogues are by Ritesh Shah, who also worked with her on Dhaakad. Apart from Emergency, Kangana will be seen in Tejas and Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda.
