Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut is currently busy at Cannes where she stunned everyone with her stunning beauty. The 'Queen' star will soon get busy with her upcoming period film 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi'. Interestingly, Kangana wants to follow Aamir Khan’s footsteps and release the film in China.
The source told Mid-Day, “Kamal and Kangana are keen to release the Rani Laxmibai biopic in China. They had gone to seek advice from Aamir on the subject. Since Aamir has cracked the Chinese market with his string of hits, his feedback is important to the film’s strategy.”
A few days ago producer, Kamal Jain shared a picture of two superstars with him on social media, which triggered the speculation that the duo might be collaborating for a film. But the fact is Aamir will just be producing a film and not acting in it.
Talking about their recent meeting, producer Kamal Jain mentioned to Mid-Day that “a collaboration” is in the offering. The producer further added, “The meeting was regarding a collaboration that is in the works. It was a positive meeting. We had a long discussion, and are hopeful that something more fruitful comes of it.”
According to reports doing the rounds in trade circles, it seems that Kangana and Jain have thought about the idea of having Aamir Khan on board of the Arunima Sinha biopic. A source was quoted as saying by the leading tabloid, “The film was originally expected to be backed by Farhan Akhtar, but was later acquired by DAR Motion Pictures. Given its compelling storyline, it won’t be surprising if Aamir Khan also comes on board as producer.”

Meanwhile, elaborating on her no-Khans policy, the three-time National Award winner had said, “In fact, there is no longevity with working with Khans. It’s the other way around. Where would it take me? Can it take me a notch higher than where I already am? It cannot! What can it give me that I have already not achieved? I can’t see a single thing…if you can tell me.”
She goes on to explain how in a Khan film, they dominate every frame and she would want to build her own brand.
“I have popularity. I have built a fan following of mine, where do I go from here. The only way I can last is by growth. That I will only get if I go a notch higher than my last film. In a film, there’s only one hero. There are exceptions of course. Let’s talk about a Khan film. Who is the hero in that film? When I have done and am working on films that give me the possibility of building a brand of my own individually, it will be very stupid of me to go and stand behind someone else and try and en-cash their popularity,” she told in one of her interviews.
Kangana's 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', co-starring Ankita Lokhande and Sonu Sood, is slated to release on August 15....
