MUMBAI: After working on films like Gangster and Life In A Metro, Kangana Ranaut and Anurag Basu are all set to reunite for another interesting project. It was twelve years ago when Kangana was launched by Anurag Basu in the Hindi film industry with romantic-crime drama Gangster.
After so many years, the actor-director duo will be coming together for a love saga titled, Imali. It has been confirmed that Kangana will be playing the female lead in the film while the male lead is yet not finalised. According to reports, Kangana will begin shooting for the film by the end of this year.
Confirming the same and sharing her excitement of working with Anurag Basu, Kangana told Mirror, “It’s too early to talk about Imali as we are starting the film around the end of the year. All I can say is that Anurag is my godfather and everything I am today is because of him… I can’t wait to go back to the beginning.”
Earlier in an interview with a news agency, Anurag even spoke about how proud he’s of Kangana’s work. He had said, “I saw a spark in her but had no idea that she will become such a huge star! With every single character that she plays, she has mastered the art of character building. I look at her growth as an artiste and feel proud,”
Kangana is currently working on Ekta Kapoor’s film Mental Hai Kya with Rajkummar Rao. Other than that, she has another film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, where she will be seen essaying the role of Rani Laxmi Bai. Kangana has also signed Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s film which stars her as a Kabaddi player.
