New Delhi: Kangana Ranaut shared throwback pictures from her childhood that show her uncanny resemblance with late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Taking to her Instagram stories, Kangana treated fans with new pictures. In the picture, the ‘Queen’ actor was seen wearing a school dress but the spotlight was on her short curly hair.

Sharing the first picture, she wrote, “It’s uncanny growing up many of my relatives called me Indira Gandhi probably because of my hairstyle #emergency”. In the second image, cute young Kangana struck a pose by looking at the camera with big eyes and curly hair resembling former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

She shared another picture and wrote, “I didn’t follow anyone’s hairstyle as a kid I went to the village barber on my own and guided him to do hair cut that I liked it short… this inspired many jokes in the family especially all uncles from army background called me Indira Gandhi… #emergency.”On Sunday, the ‘Dhaakad’ actor shared a video on her Instagram and gave an update about the film’s wrap.

‘Emergency’ marks Kangana Ranaut’s first solo directorial project. It revolves around the life of Indira Gandhi and features Kangana in the titular role of the late leader.

Talking about donning the directorial hat for the second time, Kangana said, “My last directorial was Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and I got an encouraging response from the audience as it was a blockbuster. I was tempted to direct another film but I had many acting assignments to complete. I do believe that I know the pulse of the audience from my interviews, my quotes and the terms that I have coined are now part of pop culture (she laughs). I do believe that the audience is looking for something which will stimulate their intellectual side and not just their sensual side.”

Apart from Kangana, the film also casts Anupam Kher, Mahima Chaudhry, Vishak Nair and Shreyas Talpade in prominent roles. Apart from ‘Emergency’, the ‘Queen’ actor also has director Sarwesh Mewara’s ‘Tejas’ in her kitty, in which she will be seen portraying the role of an Indian Air Force pilot. The official release date of the film is still awaited.
