Emergency release postponed amid Kangana Ranaut’s ‘duty to the nation’

The release of Kangana Ranaut’s political-drama Emergency has been postponed again. The film, which was earlier scheduled to release on June 14, will now premiere at a later date, yet to be announced by the makers.

The postponement is owing to Kangana’s campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The actor is contesting from her home district Mandi in Himachal Pradesh.

The film’s production house, Kangana-backed Manikarnika films, took to Instagram on Wednesday to make the announcement. They shared a note which stated that the release has been postponed because Kangana is prioritising her “duty to the nation.”

The film will mark Kangana's debut as a solo director and is set against the backdrop of India in the 1970s when Indira Gandhi imposed the Emergency. It was a 21-month time period between 1975 and 1977 when civil liberties were suspended and elections were cancelled.

Emergency also features actors Anupam Kher, Satish Kaushik, Mahima Chaudhary, Milind Soman, Shreyas Talpade and Vishak Nair. Noted writer Ritesh Shah has penned the screenplay and dialogues of the film. A Manikarnika Films presentation, Emergency is produced by Renu Pitti and Kangana.
