Actor Satish Kaushik will be playing the role of activist and politician Jagjivan Ram in Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming film Emergency. Kangana is essaying the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the film.

Talking about Satish joining the cast, Kangana said, "Jagjivan Ram was a very popular leader. One of the most loved and revered leaders of his time. When Mrs Gandhi refused his request of relaxing Emergency, he quit the Congress and there were grave consequences for her."

"That was his relevance. I needed somebody for this role who has his strength, his wit and his sarcasm. Satishji was an obvious choice for this role. I am looking forward to my scenes with him as an actor. They are some of the most engaging, entertaining and strong scenes in the film."

Satish added: "When you are playing the role of a historic or political personality, then you have to really study and research a lot about the person whom you are playing. It is a great feeling to play the former Defence Minister of India, Babu Jagjivan Ram Ji in Emergency."

"It would not have been possible without the help of my director, Kangana Ranaut, who is very calm, composed and in full command as the captain of the ship. I love the way she pampers and helps her actors to give the right performance and ensures that even the minutest detail is not missed out."

Apart from playing the lead, Kangana is also directing the film.

When it comes to other characters, Anupam Kher will be seen as the revolutionary leader J P Narayan, Shreyas Talpade essays the role of late politician Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Mahima Chaudhry will be seen playing the role of author Pupul Jayakar, Milind Soman will essay Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw and Vishak Nair will be seen as Sanjay Gandhi.

The film is produced by Renu Pitti and Kangana, and the screenplay and dialogues are by Rites.
