Mumbai: After making an impressive directorial debut with Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Kangana Ranaut recently revealed details about her next project as filmmaker. The National Award-winning actress will next be helming her own biopic. And just like many her fans, there's one Bollywood actress who is looking forward to watch Kangana's biopic. That actress is none other than Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Kareena who is known for her unapologetic and amusing replies recently praised Kangana Ranaut in an interview with a leading daily. Kareena had always been a fan of Kangana and her work and is always upfront to praise her. In a recent interview with the publication Kareena said, "I have heard that Kangana's biopic is coming. I am excited to watch her biopic."
She further added, "I believe that she is one of the finest actresses and I love her. I am so fond of her. She is an astonishing actress and an intelligent woman.
When asked if she has watched Manikarnika yet, the 'Veere Di Wedding' actress said, "I haven't, but I am going to watch it soon. Saif has congratulated her for the film."
The upcoming biopic will be written by Baahubali fame KV Vijayendra who also wrote Kangana's Manikarnika.
Kangana herself confirmed the news in a statement. She said, “Yes, it is true. My own story is the subject of my next directorial. But it is not a propaganda film with characters who are starkly black and white, rather it is a sincere, heartfelt account of my journey so far with plenty of lighter moments. I am emboldened by the love of the people around me, who have never judged me but accepted me for who I am.”
“Around 12 weeks ago, he (KV Vijayendra) urged me to let him write a film based on my life. I was nervous and wary initially, but then, given his stature and the fact that I trust him implicitly, I gave Vijayendra sir the go-ahead to the project,” Kangana added.
Meanwhile, Kareena is excited to start shooting for Good News opposite Akshay Kumar and has Karan Johar's multi-starrer Takht in her kitty.
On the other hand, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi marks Kangana's third Rs 100 Cr film after Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Krrish 3. Kangana Ranaut will be seen next in Mental Hai Kya opposite Rajkummar Rao. She will also feature in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's Panga.
